Lawsuit #2 Filed Against Conception Abbey

A second lawsuit was filed in Missouri today. The lawsuit, which names Conception Abbey as a defendant, alleges that Bede Parry sexually abused a fifteen year old member of the Conception Abbey Boys Choir over a eighteen month period beginning in 1982.

The lawsuit alleges that officials had knowledge of misconduct by Bede Parry
in the late 1970’s and learned of additional misconduct in 1981 when Bede Parry was living at St. John’s Abbey in Collegeville, Minnesota, before they put him in charge of the choir in 1982.
