A former Gonzaga College High School priest was removed from the ministry after an allegation surfaced accusing the priest of inappropriately touching a minor in the 1980s.

The Society of Jesus has removed Glenn Murray, S.J., from the Ministry. Murray taught at Gonzaga from 1974 to 1976. Most recently, he was an assistant pastor at St. Aloysius Parish but wasn’t a staffer or part of the faculty at Gonzaga.

There have been no reports of inappropriate conduct while Murray was at Gonzaga or St. Aloysius Parish.

“I presume to take this occasion to assure all members of the Gonzaga community of our deep commitment to the safety and well-being of our students and all minors,” said Rev. Joseph E. Lingan, S.J., president of Gonzaga College High School. “I ask you to join in praying for the healing of the young person, now an adult, who came forward and for all those who are affected by this sad matter.”
