The Rev. Michael "Mitch" Walters, parochial vicar at Our Lady of Sorrows Church, also has given up two archdiocese-wide positions.

Walters served as director of the Center for Ministerial Development, overseeing educational and spiritual enrichment programs for parishioners, and director of the Pontifical Mission Societies, which raises money for missionary and evangelical work.

The accused priest denies the allegations, said the spokesman, Jim Goodness.

"He said nothing had happened, that he did not do this," Goodness said.
