MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The St. Paul-Minneapolis Archdiocese says two pastors are taking leaves as a result of an ongoing review of clergy files.

The Rev. Joseph Gallatin is pastor at the Church of St. Peter in Mendota. The Rev. Mark Wehmann is pastor at St. Boniface in Minneapolis.

The archdiocese says they won't be performing public ministry pending a final review.

The company reviewing the files found Gallatin was accused of one incident of inappropriate conduct with a minor involving what the church calls a "boundary violation."

The firm says the incident wasn't criminal, but has referred it to police. The review of Wehmann found several incidents of boundary violations.

The archdiocese says police were told about most of them previously and determined charges weren't warranted. Gallatin and Wehmann didn't immediately return messages.
