A new church, an ancient order
by Brett Larson Editor
"In Onamia, their schools have closed, but the Crosiers have continued to host the Mille Lacs Academy. Now, as the Academy builds a new facility, the Crosiers are looking ahead again.Holl said the Crosiers see their community and surroundings as a place of healing for the mind, body and spirit.
Their relationships with Mille Lacs Health System and Nexus have promoted those values, and the renovated church and the new shrine of St. Odilia complement what Holl calls "Onamia commons.""
Hannabelle doesn't like pedophiles, perverts, toddler molesters - no matter what their age or religion. Is she the ONLY ONE in Onamia who doesn't condone abuse or worship abusers? JEEEZ!
Strange, but True...
Father Jerry Schik is a Nexus Board member. He resides at the St. Odilia facility in Shoreview (where they are apparently sending some of these pedophile priests).
Do the priests molest these poor troubled boys, then turn around and support their victims "treatment"? Of course, I got no answers from Father Jerry... He refused to talk to Hannabelle (see Hannabelle's HALL OF SHAME on millelacsnews.com )

_________________________________________Crosiers Address Sex Abuse Shoreview Religious Order Identifies Eight Offenders
By Chris Graves, Warren Wolfe and Richard Meryhew Star Tribune [Minneapolis MN]October 10, 2002
A Roman Catholic religious order based in Shoreview on Wednesday publicly identified eight members who sexually abused minors, and it announced a stronger policy against sexual misconduct that is aimed at restoring the public's trust. The eight Crosier priests and brothers who abused minors have been removed from public ministry and are living under restrictions, according to a summary of an independent audit released by the Crosier order.
Eight Crosier members living on restrictions
Eight Crosier members were found to be the subject of credible claims of sexual abuse of a minor.

After a long career of child molestation, it appears that many of the pedophile priests retire to sunny Arizona. Hey, isn't that where councilman Jerome Kryzer spends his winters? Co-inkidink?
