Cedarburg Priest Accused of Sexual Abuse

Father Tom Eichenberger of St. Francis Borgia Parish in Cedarburg has been put on administrative leave following an allegation of sexual abuse from a minor that allegedly happened 38 years ago.

Father Eichenberger denies the allegation and the District Attorney will not prosecute, but per protocol an independent investigator will investigate for the Archdiocese.

A meeting of pastoral council was held Thursday and members were told the Father is now on administrative leave.

Parishioners will learn more at this weekend’s Masses.

In the meantime, a parish director from Grafton will serve in Father Eichenberger’s place.
