A popular priest known for his animated sermons said goodbye to his congregation on Sunday amid allegations of sexual impropreties. The Reverend Maurice Nutt has been accused of making sexual advances against two male St. Louis police officers when serving as the civilian president of the Police Board. The priest publicly denied the allegations, leaving in January on a six-month sabbatical. The Police Board has refused to release the results of its investigation. Nutt has been assigned to Chicago where he will head the African-American Ministry Network initiative. Nutt has presided over the St. Alphonsus “Rock” Catholic Church for the past 13 years.
