After a criminal investigation into allegations of inappropriate sexual conduct with an adult made against Father Thomas Joseph, the Carver County Attorney’s Office declined to bring criminal charges in the case, Archbishop Bernard Hebda announced in a May 11 statement.

Father Joseph, former pastor of St. Nicholas in Carver, remains on a leave of absence while the archdiocese’s Office of Ministerial Standards and Safe Environment conducts an internal review. Archbishop Hebda urged “patience and prayer” until the process is completed.
