Novices and Vows at St. John's Abbey, Collegeville, MN


...summer, 2010

Two novices, four first vows, two solemn vows.


Avoid. Avoid. Avoid.

Danger Will Robinson! Danger!

Google search the happenings at said abbey.


...not good :nope:


If the church prevented vocations to religious institutes involved in abuse scandals, there would be no further vocations in the Catholic church.

Virtually each and every men's religious institute of any size has been involved in the abuse scandals.

The abuse contact in this case is remote and the current contact appears to be very limited.
