Priest resigns from Cuenin’s former parish

Two new stories today in the ongoing saga of Fr. Walter Cuenin in the Archdiocese of Boston. First, Fr. Chris Coyne, the new pastor of Cuenin’s former parish of Our Lady Help of Christians in Newton, has announced he’s stepping down. Coyne has been under attack from the moment he got there. People at the parish saw him as one of Cardinal Law’s old cronies (he was a spokesman for Law) and heard that he’d been asked if he wanted the parish months before Cuenin actually resigned.

It is obviously not a coincidence that Coyne’s resignation immediately follows Cuenin’s appointment as a campus minister at Brandeis University. Now the people at OLHC can’t agitate for Cuenin’s reappointment as pastor (well, they can and probably will, but it is a clear sign they won’t get it).
