Latest on Father Lawrence Minder

From Priest who claimed abuse taking a leave:

"The Bothell priest who quit after announcing he was molested by a priest as a child will be taking a leave of absence instead and using that time to get a complete health evaluation.

According to a letter Wednesday by the Rev. Lawrence Minder to the parishioners of St. Brendan Catholic Church, the Seattle Archdiocese has granted him a temporary leave of absence rather than accepting the resignation he had offered."
