Priest who fathered child suspended

St. Louis- Associated Press

A Wisconsin diocese late Friday suspended a Roman Catholic Priest who fathered a child during a five year relationship in Illinois and may have been involved separately with a minor.

The Catholic Diocese of Superior said the Rev. Henry Willenberg has been suspended with pay.

The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests called for the move earlier Friday in St. Louis. The national support group for those hurt by religious authorities also said it wants church officials in Missouri and Wisconsin to help mother and son now 22 who has terminal cancer.
