Fr. Thomas Berg, leaving the Legion of Christ
... to become a priest of the New York Diocese.
The article is here from Catholic Culture.
Father Berg, who had urged his fellow Legion members to reflect seriously on the "profoundly disturbing" revelations about the order's founder, Father Marcial Maciel, said that he has been considering the move for some time. He said that he hoped the apostolic visitation recently announced by the Vatican would help provide a "new beginning" for the Legionaries, adding that "I remain their friend and brother in the Lord." The Westchester Institute, which has been sponsored by the Legion of Christ, will be reorganized under a new board of directors.
