A Catholic priest was removed from the ministry after accusations of abuse during a period of time he was pastor at an Orangevale church.

Father Robert Marsicek was formerly the pastor at Divine Savior Parish along Greenback Lane. More recently, he was pastor for two parishes in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.

Marsicek faces allegations of sexual abuse of minors from two people who were parishioners at Divine Savior in the 1980s and 90s, and also more recent allegations from two people in Wisconsin.

The district attorney in Wisconsin will not be filing criminal charges at this time. However, Marsicek has been removed from ministry by the Salvatorian Provincial, and placed in a supervised residence in Wisconsin until investigations are complete.

Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputies are aware of the accusations, and are investigating. Anyone with information of abuse is asked to call deputies at (916) 874-5191.
