The church’s name is Holy Innocents, but some of the things that happened there might not have been so innocent.

A former altar girl at Holy Innocents Church in Flatbush told police on Saturday that a custodian there groped her between 2013 and 2015, when she was between 12 and 15 years old, according to the New York Post.

The Brooklyn Catholic Diocese said in a statement, “We take every allegation of this nature seriously. The case is now in the hands of the authorities. We await the conclusion of their investigation.”

The pastor, the Rev. Saint Charles Borno, wasn’t available to comment on Sunday, the Post reported.

The church at 279 E. 17th St. appeared in several episodes of the AMC television series “Mad Men.”
