MN--Disgraced archbishop is on seminary board; Victims respond

For immediate release: Tuesday, June 7, 2016

Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790,314 645 5915 home, davidgclohessy@gmail.com)

Disgraced Archbishop John Neinstedt of Minnesota, accused of both committing and concealing clergy sexual misconduct, is apparently still on the board of a prominent Catholic seminary in Rome. That’s disgraceful and reckless, especially because he allegedly sexually exploited several seminarians himself.
