Archbishop John Nienstedt resigned in shame as Minnesota's top Catholic churchman in June 2015. The archbishop left his archdiocese shortly after it was charged criminally with “failure to protect children." Archbishop Nienstedt’s successor publicly admitted that this was indeed the case.

Statement by SNAP Chapter MK Safety Net
Dianne Couts, President
MK Safety Net is greatly disappointed that Dr. Donn Ketcham will never stand trial. Some of his victims, who were MKs (missionary kids) in Bangaladesh when he molested them, have once again been the ones to suffer. For over a year and a half the dread of having to testify against him in court has hung over their heads as the trial was postponed again and again. Yesterday the court ruled that, due to his Parkinson's disease and failing memory, Donn Ketcham was not competent to stand trial because he would not be able to defend himself.
