Some members of Saint John’s Abbey have been charged with sexual misconduct. In collaboration with its divisions (Saint John’s University, Saint John’s Preparatory School and the Liturgical Press) the Abbey has created this Web site to provide information for alumni, parents, friends and neighbors near and far about the variety of ways the people of Saint John’s are responding in this time of crisis. We will do our best to make this an accurate, clear and timely resource.
