Msgr. Edward Arsenault, president and CEO of St. Luke Institute in Silver Spring, has resigned in the wake of an investigation into an alleged inappropriate adult relationship and the uncovering of possible illegal financial dealings in the diocese of Manchester, N.H.
The resignation of Arsenault, a priest of the Manchester diocese, was effective May 3. It was announced in statements issued by the institute and the diocese.
The investigation does not involve St. Luke Institute, a treatment facility for Catholic clergy and religious, the institute said in its statement.
