New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan is closely following the case of a New Jersey priest who defied an agreement to stay away from children.

Dolan’s spokesman tells The Record newspaper the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has not convened an investigation.

The Rev. Michael Fugee resigned last week. The 52-year-old was convicted in 2003 of fondling a boy in Wyckoff. However, that verdict was vacated because of judicial error. Fugee entered a program to avoid retrial and agreed to never again work with children.

However, he attended youth retreats involving a church in Colts Neck.

There have been calls for Newark Archbishop John Myers to resign. The newspaper reports the archdiocese has hired a noted lawyer while the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office investigates the case.
