Former Principal Removed From Ministry

POTTSTOWN PA – Gerard J. Hoffman, a former principal and faculty member at St. Pius X Roman Catholic High School, 844 N Keim St., has been removed from the ministry in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia by Cardinal Justin Rigali “following an investigation by church officials that found he sexually abused a minor more than 30 years ago,” The Philadelphia Inquirer newspaper reported Monday (March 23, 2009).

Hoffman, 64, has agreed to accept a supervised life of prayer and penance at a home for retired priests in Delaware County, The Inquirer said. He was first accused of abuse in July 2008.

Hoffman was a faculty member at St. Pius from 1976 to 1988, and principal from 1990 to 1993.
