Thirty-three priests or re­li­gious broth­ers in the Ro­man Catholic Dio­cese of Jef­fer­son City, Mo., have been “cred­i­bly ac­cused” and/or re­moved from the min­istry over sex­ual abuse of mi­nors, the bishop of the cen­tral Mis­souri dio­cese said Thurs­day.

The list in­cludes 25 priests from the dio­cese, three priests from other ar­eas who pre­vi­ously served in the Jef­fer­son City dio­cese, and five mem­bers of a re­li­gious or­der.
