A retired Michigan priest has been removed from public ministry following allegations of sexual misconduct.

The Archdiocese of Detroit says the Rev. Louis Grandpre is accused of misconduct involving a minor dating back to the early years of his service.

An archdiocesan review board found that the allegation against the 79-year-old Grandpre was substantive. Civil authorities have been notified.

There is no telephone listing for Grandpre's home in Detroit.

According to a statement released by the archdiocese on Tuesday, Grandpre was ordained in 1961 and served at parishes in Detroit, Dearborn, Algonac, Southfield and Macomb County's Clinton Township.

He achieved senior, or retired, status in 2003.
