‘Heroic’ MN school superintendent sues Catholic group
He takes legal action to hold child molesting cleric accountable
New child sex abuse and fraud case is filed against church organization
It charges that Christian Brothers deceived parents & let children be abused
Roughly ten years later, Rose sexually assaulted the victim in this new suit. The crimes took place at the Dunrovin Christian Brothers Retreat Center at Marine on St. Croix, MN when the boy was 13-15 years old.
The new lawsuit charges two Catholic institutions (the Christian Brothers of the Midwest, The Christian Brothers of Minnesota) with fraud because they represented to victim and his family that Rose was safe when they knew he had sexually abused at least one boy earlier.
The suit is being filed in Ramsey County District Court. The Christian Brothers’ regional headquarters is in Chicago. Their Minnesota headquarters is at 1883 Laurel Avenue in St. Paul.
Rose has never been held accountable for his crimes and has worked for the Christian Brothers for at least five decades. He is believed to be living in Chicago in a church facility located next to a Christian Brothers high school called the De La Salle Institute.
