Providence Diocese Reacts To Priest's Suspension

The Providence Catholic Diocese says it is removing a retired priest from participating from further activities after a suspension for an investigation of alleged sexual abuse. The Providence Diocese says it was notified by the Diocese of Fall River last Thursday about the action being taken against Father Edward Byington. The Providence Diocese says Byington assisted at Masses in parishes including St. Augustine in Providence, St. Joan of Arc in Cumberland, and St. Joseph in West Warwick, where he also taught at the parish school part-time. At this time, the Providence Diocese says there are no known allegations against him while he was here.
