Statement Regarding Fr. Mark Huberty

Fr. Mark Huberty was criminally charged today in Ramsey County District Court regarding accusations made against him by a woman who has alleged inappropriate sexual contact.

The Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis first learned of this situation from another priest in late August and we immediately began an investigation.  The Archdiocese fully cooperated with all civil authorities in conducting their investigation, and Fr. Huberty was placed on leave from active ministry on September 19.

As a result of today’s developments, Fr. Huberty submitted his resignation as pastor of the Church of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Maplewood.

Fr. Huberty will remain on leave until the investigation is concluded.
