KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -

The Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas says an associate pastor at two churches is suspended as state child-welfare workers and the archdiocese investigate his conduct, in one case involving a juvenile.

The archdiocese said Tuesday that Father Scott Kallal was suspended from public ministry duties after two sources accused him of "boundary violations." Archdiocese spokeswoman Anita McSorley declined to elaborate.

The archdiocese says Kallal's suspension was announced last weekend during Masses at two churches he served — Overland Park's Holy Spirit Church and St. Patrick Church in Kansas City, Kansas.

Kallal hasn’t been arrested or charged. 

Because one of the allegations involved a minor, the Kansas Department for Children and Families has been notified. The investigation is ongoing. The Independent Review Board has been asked to review the matter and make recommendations.

Kallal has denied any moral misconduct or malicious intent and has agreed to undergo evaluation and counseling.
