The Xaverian Brothers, a Catholic order, has named 34 men accused of sexually abusing children at their high schools dating back to the 1930s. The allegations listed span the course of 50 years, with the most recent ones coming in the 1980s.

The Catholic group operates 13 schools, including five in Massachusetts. Of the men accused at least a dozen are associated with St. John's Preparatory school in Danvers and five with Xavierian Brothers High School in Westwood.

Others worked at Malden Catholic and St. John's High School in Shrewsbury.

The Xaverian Brothers have also issued an apology and are asking for forgiveness for failing to protect the victims.
