Abbot Kelly Covered Up Misconduct by Fr. Schulte


St. John’s Abbey publications and newspaper articles from the 1990s on contradict the abbey’s own statement about the whereabouts and work history of the Rev. Francisco Schulte after the abbey received an allegation of sexual misconduct against him.


The statement issued by the abbey last week said that from February 1992 “through June of 2002, Father Francisco was living at Saint John’s Abbey with ‘prudent, non-risk’ limitations on his ministry.”

Anderson sued Schulte, the abbey, the Order of St. Benedict and St. John’s Prep last week, alleging a cover-up of sexual misconduct committed by Schulte dating back to the mid-1980s.
