Father Eugene Boland, 65, from Moville, faces four charges relating to alleged assaults on the girl in Derry between June 1990 and June 1992.
The priest is on a leave of absence from his position as PP in Killyclogher in Co Tyrone. Fr Boland is a native of Moville and was ordained in St Pius X Church there in 1973.
A preliminary enquiry into the case at Derry Magistrates Court is due to go ahead.
