Abbey’s Motion to Dismiss Denied; Parry Case Moves Forward


On October 21, 2011 a judge in Nodaway County, Missouri dismissed Conception Abbey’s motion to dismiss a lawsuit brought against the Abbey by one of Fr. Bede Parry’s victims.

Fr. Parry was a visiting monk at Saint John’s Abbey from 1979 to 1982 while he took classes at the Saint John’s School of Theology. While on campus, Parry was caught in an inappropriate relationship with at least one student.

Saint John’s Abbey personnel covered up the misconduct.

The October 21 Ruling:

Defendant Conception Abbey Inc. has moved this Court, pursuant to Missouri Supreme Court Rule 55.27(a) (6), to dismiss Plaintiff’s Petition for Damages for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted. The Defendant asserts that dismissal is required because the pleaded facts in the Petition establish that Plaintiff’ s cause of action is barred by the applicable statute of limitations. The Motion to Dismiss has been fully briefed and argued and the Defendants Motion to Dismiss is hereby denied.
