PHILADELPHIA - The Archdiocese of Philadelphia has reinstated a Montgomery County priest suspected of child sexual abuse.
The diocese said Sunday that Archbishop Charles Chaput decided Monsignor Joseph Logrip is suitable for ministry.
It cited "unsubstantiated allegations that he sexually abused minors over 20 years ago."
It said the 67-year-old Logrip's case is the last to be decided out of 26 priests put on leave after the grand jury report was unsealed.
Including Logrip, 11 were reinstated while 14 were removed from ministry. One died during the investigation and one, the Rev. Andrew McCormick, was charged.
The 67-year-old Logrip was ordained in 1972 and most recently served at Saint Mary Manor and Saint Stanislaus in Lansdale.
The archdiocese said it informed parishioners over the weekend.
