Bishop Donald Kettler of the Diocese of St. Cloud announced Tuesday that two names have been added to the list of clergy likely to have abused minors. Both men are deceased.
In a press release issued by the Diocese, Casimir Plakut and Augustine John Strub were named as religious order priests added by St. John's Abbey in Collegeville to its list of men "likely to have offended minors."
Plakut was ordained in 1938 and died in 1988. Strub was ordained in 1947 and died in 2015.
Both men served for a time at St. Boniface Church in Cold Spring. In line with past practice, Kettler will hold a listening session in the near future at St. Boniface Church. The time and date of that listening session have not been released.
The full list of clergy likely to have abused minors is available on the Diocese of St. Cloud website, www.stcdio.org.
