There is more fallout from the sex abuse scandal surrounding the Newark Archbishop.

The pastor and two youth ministers at the Monmouth County Church have now resigned.

It’s the same church where the Reverend Michael Fugee was allowed to work with teens, despite a lifetime ban.

The priest was banned after confessing to fondling a 14-year-old boy.

Last week, he stepped down from his two positions with the Archdiocese.

According to the Star Ledger, Fugee, with the approval of Archbishop John Myers, continued to have contact with children.
