11 monks on restriction; 2 on leave of absence


Under St. John’s policy, monks on restriction are to have no pastoral or teaching duties or unsupervised social contact with young people. They are not allowed to work in the prep school or university, use most campus facilities, or serve in parishes. They may not travel without permission. Some have been allowed limited travel.

Currently, 11 monks are on restriction because of credible evidence of sexual misconduct. Two others Brother John Kelly and Brother Isaac Connolly would be on restriction had they not taken leaves of absence. A handful of monks are on restriction because of abuse not involving another person, a spokesman said. The abbey would not identify them.
