VA chaplain suspended for alleged inappropriate talks with minors

A chaplain for Veterans Administration Medical Center in Bedford was suspended because of allegations about long-ago inappropriate conversations with minors, the Archdiocese for the Military Services said Monday.

The allegations of “boundary violations with minors” against the Rev. Luke Odor emerged recently but date to the early to mid-1990s, the Archdiocese for the Military Services said in a statement. The alleged conversations occurred when Odor worked in the Archdiocese of St. Paul Minneapolis and the Diocese of Fargo, N.D., and appear to have been resolved by all parties.
