The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests
SNAP Press Release
Child molesting cleric worked at Fargo school
Victims urge Superintendent to reach out to “others he’s hurt”
Four child sexual abuse lawsuits filed this year against his employer
Two more such suits are expected to be filed in the next few weeks
Yet, even now, predator walks free and lives across the street from a boy’s high school
He hasn’t been defrocked, is still on a church payroll and lives at a Christian Brothers facility.
In 2003, Rose was civilly sued for molesting kids for the first time (in California). Because of his crimes, four civil fraud lawsuits against the Christian Brothers have been filed this year in Minnesota, where he also worked. Two more are expected to be filed in the weeks ahead.
SNAP says there’s no evidence that Catholic officials warned anyone when Rose was transferred from school to school and state to state. Rose was even allowed to chaperone students on overnight fieldtrips and school events.
Brother F. Michael Collins (612-676-7600) is now the President at De La Salle High School in Minneapolis, where Rose also molested. Collins was the Administrator at Shanley during Rose's time there.
SNAP is also hoping that Rose may yet be criminally prosecuted for his crimes, if more individuals with knowledge of his wrong doing find the courage to step forward and call police.
Rose’s Minnesota victims are represented by St. Paul attorney Patrick Noaker (651 227 9990).
