Allegations of Abuse and/or Misconduct
Father Jonathan Licari was removed from the Saint John's Abbey's External Review Board in September of 2003 following an allegation of misconduct involving a minor. Almost two years later (May, 2005), Abbot John Klassen reported that Licari "had an evaluation and went to therapy." The abbot's account was later (October, 2013) changed to: ''Fr. Jonathan voluntarily submitted to an evaluation by a qualified, highly-regarded therapist. This evaluation was thorough and covered all relevant issues.''
