Allegations of Abuse and/or Misconduct
At least two students at St. John's Abbey accused Bennett, who ran the infirmary, of abusing them. Abbey officials say that Bennett had problems with alcohol and was later treated for abuse of prescription drugs. The victims may have settled as part of massive settlement announced 10/02 regarding approx. 11 St. John's Abbey priests and Monks.(Eureka)

Andre Bennet had at least six victims, with most of the abuse (mainly fondling) taking place in the 1960's and 1970's in the infirmary.

Miscellaneous Notes
Brother Andre was appointed Saint John's Infirmarian in 1958. He held that position for 33 years, until 1991. For most of his tenure, the Infirmary was located in what is now known as St. Gregory House. In 1976, Saint John's University converted the infirmary into student housing. The monks renovated the south wing of the Quadrangle to become both a Health Center on the ground floor and a monastic retirement center on the second floor. After retirement as Infirmarian in May 1991, Brother Andre served as a medical records professional in the new Saint John's Health Center from 1993 until 2002. (2007)
