If you were a victim who met privately with Fr. Ward after bringing your claim of sexual misconduct to the attention of St. John’s and were subsequently intimidated or harassed by him, your story is important.
Fr. Ward is alleged to have acted inappropriately with the wife of a St. John’s Prep School employee, a married classmate from law school in Iowa, at least one nun from St. Ben’s and several males, including at least one young monk at St. John’s who has since left the monastery.
