St. John's curate cleared of allegation, but will not return to parish

From Massachusetts-

The St. John's Episcopal Church curate accused of drinking alcohol and then driving youths during a mission trip will not face disciplinary action, but that doesn't mean he will continue to serve at the church.

The Rev. Stephen Scarff, whose contract was set to expire at the end of this month, will be on administrative leave until then.

The Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts received a complaint about Scarff on July 10; he began administrative leave immediately while an investigation took place.

The incident was said to have happened during a youth group mission trip to Navajoland in New Mexico, according to a letter from Bishop Alan Gates dated July 28.
