Former U.S. Cardinal McCarrick Defrocked Over Sex Abuse Allegations

According to Reuters, former U.S. Cardinal Theodore McCarrick has been expelled from the Roman Catholic priesthood after he was found guilty of sexual crimes against minors and adults.

A Vatican statement said his crimes were made more serious by “the aggravating factor of the abuse of power”.

McCarrick has now become the highest profile church figure to be dismissed from the priesthood in modern times.

Defrocking means McCarrick can no longer call himself a priest or celebrate the sacraments.
