The Archdiocese of Oklahoma City is investigating one of its former priests accused of sexual abuse in the 1980s. The organization made the announcement on August 22, after receiving a letter from a former Oklahoma City resident a few days earlier.

A Catholic priest is accused of sexual misconduct on the campus of St. Gregory’s University in Shawnee and former students and faculty have questioned whether officials at the now-shuttered college failed to properly investigate complaints.

Two women have filed a lawsuit against the university, which closed and filed bankruptcy in December, and St. Gregory’s Abbey, where the priest resides.
