Allegations of Abuse and/or Misconduct
According to a former monk, Ward allegedly made sexual advances toward at least one novice. This came to light in 1991, after the man had left the monastery. In all, six individuals have accused Father Dan Ward of misconduct, including a Saint John's University student, a student from the College of St. Benedict and a graduate of Saint John's Prep School. According to an investigator hired by the abbey, the allegations of misconduct provided by the three former students were credible.
