Allegations of Abuse and/or Misconduct
Fr. Tom Andert had at least one inappropriate relationship with a high school boy while he was Headmaster of the Prep School. Abbot Timothy Kelly allegedly tried to make it seem like Andert had an alcohol problem, not a young boy problem. Andert allegedly went to treatment for alcohol related issues following the reports of misconduct.

Miscellaneous Notes
He has a record of abusing at least one of his students when he was Headmaster of the Prep School. This is not secret, in spite of the fact that he has not yet been the object of litigation. This is not a question of forgiveness or whether or not he is a good man. Is he apt to be prior in both senses of the wordsuited to the job, and/or likely to repeat something? It is the reality that sooner or later the headlines will proclaim: ST. JOHNS APPOINTS SEX ABUSER SECOND IN COMMAND. And I guarantee you this is a distinct danger. The Abbey cannot blithely ignore the list of leaders of the community that have violated celibacy, some even in criminal ways. (Sipe)
