The rector of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, the countrys largest Catholic church, has stepped aside from his role on Catholic Universitys board amid an ongoing church investigation, a spokeswoman for the basilica told The Washington Post on Friday.
Monsignor Walter Rossi, who has served on CUAs board since his appointment as rector of the basilica in 2005, requested a leave of absence on Aug. 27 until an investigation into him is finished. However, Rossi remains in active ministry, according to spokeswoman Jacquelyn Hayes.
Allegations of misconduct have included that Rossi directed young men to another priest who harassed them. The Archdiocese of Washington and the Diocese of Scranton which launched the recent church investigation have not said what exactly they are looking into.
