An Ottawa Valley priest has been charged with sexual assault offences dating back several decades.

Father Daniel M. Miller, 67, was charged Wednesday with three counts of gross indecency and three counts of indecent assault against a male.

He is scheduled to appear in court in Renfrew, located 90 km west of Ottawa, on March 28.

Police said the offences against pre-teen boys and an adult man occurred between 1970 and 1980.

A news release issued on behalf of the Diocese of Pembroke Wednesday night said Miller, who lives in Pembroke, has not been an active priest for more than a decade.

Miller was ordained in Renfrew in 1969 and served briefly in Eganville, with other positions in Arnprior, Deep River and Petawawa, prior to 1999.

“The Diocese of Pembroke prays that the truth concerning this matter may be brought to light and extends support to any parties concerned in this case,” said Michael Mulhall, the Bishop of Pembroke, in an e-mail statement.

The release stated the diocese “will continue to offer its complete co-operation with civil officials as the process unfolds and will encourage and support the healing process for all parties concerned following the resolution of the case.”
