Former Derry priest leaves post after allegations

The Franciscans barred Ledoux from practicing priestly duties, including saying Mass.

“He wasn’t supposed to do any ministry,” Geoly said.

The Philadelphia Inquirer, reporting the story over the weekend, said Ledoux is now living at a Franciscan facility in New York. He refused to discuss the matter with the newspaper, but maintained his innocence.

“He never admitted doing it,” Geoly said.

Hanson said Ledoux served nine years at Widender and there were never allegations of sexual misconduct against him there.

“There were no allegations or any hints of any improper activities at Widener University,” he said.
