Last week executive vice president at the University of Notre Dame, Father Tim Scully, stepped down in the wake of controversy. Now, another Notre Dame priest is in the spotlight.

NewsCenter 16 has learned that a dormitory rector has been fired for an apparent inappropriate relationship. University officials say Father Samuel Peters was dismissed from his job as the rector of Sorin Hall.

Spokesman Matt Storin tells NewsCenter 16 that Peters admitted to a relationship with an "of age" female. Storin would not say if the woman was a student. Storin says any further discipline against Father Peters would be up to the Holy Cross Order, of which Father Peters is a member.
