Miscellaneous Notes
The archdiocese and abbey learned of the allegations in 1997, but Bik was allowed to continue teaching at St. John's Preparatory School and St. John's University for five years before being placed on restrictions in 2002. (2006)

In 1998, an "adult male victim" went to Archbishop Harry Flynn with "a very credible claim" of having been abused by Bik while a pupil at St. Stephen's School in Anoka, McGrath said. Flynn informed St. John's of the accusation and "made sure the victim got counseling," McGrath said. "The victim had asked for confidentiality, and the archbishop honored that request." (2006)
