GLENDALE, Ariz. -

The Phoenix Catholic Diocese has responded to an allegation of sexual abuse against one of it's deacons.

62-years-old Ron Gonzalez worked at St. Thomas More parish in Glendale until just a few days ago.

He was been at the church since 2003, but the allegations stem from incidents in Texas and Pennsylvania 15 to 20 years before he was transferred to Arizona.

The Diocese of Phoenix released this statement, in part: 

"Gonzalez's faculties to function in ministry within the Diocese of Phoenix have been revoked and he is no longer employed by the parish. The Diocese of Phoenix has also contacted the authorities regarding the allegations. The Diocese of Phoenix takes these matters very seriously and urges anyone who may know of any other such misconduct, or who may have any relevant information regarding Gonzalez, to contact local law enforcement and the Diocesan Office of Child and Youth Protection at (602) 354-2396."
