MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A Twin Cities area pastor is on leave after the Archdiocese says it received a credible sexual abuse allegation.

The Rev. Robert Fitzpatrick is accused of sexually abusing a minor in the 1980s.

Fitzpatrick is currently the pastor at Corpus Christi Parish in St. Paul and St. Rose of Lima Parish and School in Roseville.

In the 1980s he served as an Associate Pastor at Holy Spirit in St. Paul and as pastor at St. John the Evangelist in Little Canada.

The Archdiocese says it has notified law enforcement about the allegation.
