Former Catholic priest Frank Klep has faced the Melbourne Magistrates court on charges of child sex abuse dating back to the 1970s.
The former college principal of Salesian College Rupertswood, in Sunbury, is accused of six indecent assaults in 1974.
Police allege some of the abuse also took place at Chadstone.
He was arrested yesterday as part of ongoing investigations by Taskforce Sano into allegations emanating from the Victorian Parliamentary Inquiry into child sexual abuse.
A second former priest, Wilfred Baker, 76, of Greenvale, has also appeared in court accused of a series of indecent assaults dating back to 1966.
Baker faces 14 charges including buggery, indecently assaulting a male person and committing an act of gross indecency in the presence of a male person.
Both men were bailed to return to court in May.
A third man has been questioned by the taskforce and released pending summons.
