BEDFORD, Mass. (AP) - A Roman Catholic chaplain at the Veterans Administration hospital in Bedford has been suspended pending a church investigation into what the Archdiocese of the Military calls allegations of "boundary violations with minors."
The archdiocese said in a statement the allegations against the Rev. Luke Odor date to the early 1990s when he served in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis and the Diocese of Fargo, N.D. and do not involve physical sexual abuse.
The Boston Archdiocese says Odor had been living at the rectory at St. Isidore in Stow, although he had no official functions with the diocese. He no longer lives there.
A man who picked up at a phone listing for Odor said the priest was not available.
The 63-year-old Odor is a priest of the Diocese of Aba, Nigeria.
