Information & Community Notifications

When a credible claim of sexual abuse of a minor involving a Crosier is established, the Crosier Fathers and Brothers immediately notify the appropriate officials and also alert the public through a Community Notification Statement on this website.

10-MAY-16 - Crosier priest placed on administrative leave - UPDATED 30-AUG-17: Crosier priest reinstated to public ministry following thorough investigation - An outside investigation concluded the claim of abuse against a minor by Fr. Greg Poser, osc, was unsubstantiated. Fr. Greg returned to active ministry Sept. 7, 2017, following Crosier policy and the USCCB Charter for the Protection of Minors and Young People. 

06-MARCH-14 - Crosiers disclose updated list of members involved in sexual abuse

27-JAN-14 - Community Notification - Fr. Timothy Conlon, osc

In 2002, following a third-party investigation, the Crosiers released the names of eight Crosiers who had credible allegations of sexual abuse of a minor reported against them. In 2014, the Crosiers released an updated list of names to include current, former and deceased Crosiers with one or more credible claims of sexual abuse of minors. 

On May 15, 2018, the Crosiers released a list of former or deceased Crosiers whose names were brought forward as a result of the Minnesota Child Victims Act or during the Crosiers’ Chapter 11 reorganization process. The Crosiers were not aware of claims of sexual abuse of a minor against these individuals prior to that time; therefore, they were not included on the previously published listings.
Because these individuals are deceased (or believed to be deceased), there is no way to investigate these claims further. However, we are including these individuals as part of our commitment to transparency, accountability and healing.  

If anyone has a report of abuse, they are asked to please contact our Victim Assistance Line at 320-248-1563 or Conventual Prior Thomas Enneking, osc, at 602-443-7100. Other contact information may be found here.

You may find further information about the Crosier Misconduct Policy and the ways in which the Crosiers have dealt with abuse by its members, including the results of the separate review of all personnel files conducted by the law firm of Faegre-Baker-Daniels in 2002, in the Safe Environment section of this website.
