The community of Sainte Sabine mobilizes to support Father Michael Pfleger


CHICAGO (SCS) — The community of Saint Sabina gathered outside their church on Sunday to show their support for South Side activist priest Father Michael Pfleger following allegations of child sex abuse.

Pfleger retired last week after the The Archdiocese announced new allegations of sexual abuse.

A man now in his 40s claims Pfleger abused him as a child in the 1980s.

The archdiocese says the investigation is ongoing.

Pfleger was cleared of a previous sexual abuse allegation made by two brothers in 2021. The archdiocese found “insufficient evidence” and reinstated him.
