THE DIOCESE OF PEMBROKE ANNOUNCES THE DISMISSAL OF DANIEL MILLER FROM THE CLERICAL STATE

The Diocese of Pembroke announced on August 14, 2019, that Daniel Miller, a priest of the Diocese, has been dismissed from the clerical state. Dismissal from the clerical state means the person is no longer considered a cleric and may not exercise his ministry as a priest. Following his criminal conviction in 2013 for sexual abuse of five minors, the matter was referred to the Holy See, which initiated a canonical penal process.

Archbishop Mulhall sincerely apologizes to the survivors for the abuse they have suffered and for the pain they have carried.
