Priest in sex scandal sacked

MANILA, Philippines?A Catholic priest from Dipolog City has been sanctioned and restricted to the convent for alleged sexual misconduct while serving in a United States parish.

Bishop Jose Manguiran of the Diocese of Dipolog has revoked the priestly offices and functions of Fr. Reynaldo M. Pardillada, 37, who is accused of having an illicit affair with a married Filipina while serving at the Epiphany Church in Cliffside Park, New Jersey.

Pardillada was last week expelled by the Archbishop of Newark after the New Jersey-based 32-year-old Filipino woman, who also happened to be from Dipolog, reported the affair to church authorities.

The woman complained of suffering emotional and physical abuse at the hands of Pardillada whom she first met as a visiting balikbayan in Dipolog in November 2005.

She said she finally summoned the courage to complain against Pardillada when he got her pregnant twice and forced her to abort the babies. She said she also suffered one miscarriage.

In an interview posted at the Catholic Bishops? Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) website, Manguiran said he was imposing sanctions on Pardillada and restricting him to the church convent in Dipolog.

The Dipolog bishop said he has written to the Newark Archbishop apologizing for Pardillada?s conduct.

Before being transferred to the Archdiocese of Newark, Pardillada was assigned for more than a year as a ?formator? at the Saint Mary?s Seminary in Gango, Ozamiz City.
