Prominent New York priest sentenced to life of penance
CWN - February 02, 2012
A prominent New York priest has been directed to life "a life of prayer and penance" to atone for sexual abuse.
Wallace Harris, who was once the president of the New York priests' senate, and helped plan events for the visit to New York by Pope Benedict XVI in 2008, has consented to the order from the archdiocese. He is forbidden from public ministry as a priest.
