Msgr. Edward Arsenault, president and CEO of St. Luke Institute in Silver Spring, Maryland, has resigned in the wake of an investigation into an alleged inappropriate adult relationship and the uncovering of possible illegal financial dealings in the Diocese of Manchester, N.H.
The investigation does not involve St. Luke Institute, a treatment facility for Catholic clergy and religious.
The Manchester Diocese opened its investigation after receiving allegations of the relationship and that the review “discovered evidence suggesting improper financial transactions by Msgr. Arsenault involving diocesan funds.”
