ROME — Pope Francis accepted the resignation of a Los Angeles auxiliary bishop after an archdiocese oversight board found “credible” an allegation of sexual misconduct with a minor, the Vatican said Wednesday.
In announcing the resignation of Auxiliary Bishop Alexander Salazar, the Vatican did not provide an explanation. But a separate statement from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles said Salazar’s alleged misconduct occurred in the 1990s and that a board reviewing the case determined Salazar “should not have faculties to minister.”
Los Angeles Archbishop José H. Gomez forwarded that recommendation to the Holy See.
