SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - A California pastor has resigned in wake of a scandal involving a registered sex offender who was allowed to work as a Catholic school festival volunteer.

The Diocese of San Jose says the Rev. Lieu Vu resigned on Monday as pastor of the St. Frances Cabrini School and Parish.

The San Jose Mercury News says the diocese also released a letter written by a former diocese human resources employee permitting convicted 51-year-old pedophile Mark Gurries to participate at last month's elementary school festival.

Someone at the festival recognized Gurries and reported it to a security officer. The convicted molester was escorted off campus.

Gurries is married to a former St. Frances Cabrini teacher. He is on probation for molesting an underage relative after serving nearly a year in jail.
