A former Catholic priest has been charged in NSW over child sexual assaults between 1999 and 2006.

Police say the 69-year-old was arrested in Port Macquarie last Friday.

He faces multiple charges including sexual intercourse without consent, aggravated indecent assault, inciting an act of indecency with a victim under 16, committing an act of indecency and indecent assault.

Police say the charges relate to the sexual and indecent assault of a boy in Leichhardt and Kempsey between 1999 and 2006, when he was aged between 12 and 17.

The former priest has been granted conditional bail to appear at Port Macquarie Local Court on October 6.
