On August 7, 1991, the sex abuse scandal in Collegeville was made public for the first time when two lawsuits were filed against Fr. Dunstan Moorse (for sexual abuse at St. John’s Preparatory School), St. John’s Abbey and the Order of St. Benedict. Below is a television news segment from that evening. St. Cloud Bishop Jerome Hanus also appears in the news segment.
