Norwell: Accused pastor placed on leave

The Boston archidiocese said a Norwell pastor is on a voluntary leave of absence amid allegations he behaved inappropriately in the presence of children.

Fr. Thomas Maguire of Saint Helen Mother of the Emperor Constantine was placed on leave when the accusation surfaced.

Cardinal Sean O’Malley said authorities are investigating, and that the archdiocese is committed to protecting young people.
