CHICAGO (CBS) — The Chicago Archdiocese has removed a priest from his ministry over sex abuse allegations.

Father Daniel McCarthy was removed from Saint Elizabeth of the Trinity Parish in Jefferson Park.

A letter from Cardinal Blase Cupich says McCarthy is accused of abusing a child when he worked at Chicago’s Angel Guardian Orphanage some 50 years ago.

The Archdiocese reported the allegations to DCFS and the state’s attorney’s office.
