JS: Cedarburg priest returns to parish after claims go unsubstantiated

A Cedarburg priest will return for services next weekend after being cleared by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee in its investigation of an allegation that he sexually abused a minor decades ago.

In a letter sent to parishioners Sunday, Archbishop Jerome Listecki said the allegation against the Rev. Tom Eichenberger of St. Francis Borgia Parish was not substantiated.

Eichenberger was put on leave in September. The allegation came from a claim filed in the church's bankruptcy case, which accused Eichenberger of molesting a minor during his first assignment at a parish in West Allis after his 1976 ordination.
