Additional Description/Sources


Rev. Richard Lott

Allegations against Rev. Richard E. Lott include misconduct involving Delbarton students and other young men near the campus. In a 2005 lawsuit, one of Lott’s victims said he enrolled at the Delbarton School in 1975 and was molested and given marijuana and alcohol by Lott in 1977.

The Order said it learned of accusations against Lott in 2004 and reported the abuse to police.

Br. Malachy (Robert) Flavin

In another case made public two years ago, Robert Flavin, a deacon and former teacher at Delbarton, was accused of groping a former student in 1981. The student was an adult at the time. Flavin, who denied the charges through an attorney, did not appear before the review board, which found the accusations to be credible. Abbey officials say they want the deacon removed from the clergy in a process called laicization.

The Flavin case also raised questions about how St. Mary’s officials handled past allegations of abuse. They have acknowledged that Flavin worked for a time at Resurrection parish in Randolph, years after one Abbey official was told, in 1991, about the sexual abuse allegations. Abbey officials also have acknowledged that Flavin was caught drinking with students at the monastery in 1987 but was not immediately fired. They said he was told, at the time, that he would not have a teaching position the following year.

Rev. Timothy Brennan

One case involved Rev. Timothy Brennan, a priest who pleaded guilty in 1987 to aggravated sexual contact in 1984 with a 15-year-old Delbarton student. Brennan has been sent to a rehabilitation center at an undisclosed location, according to abbey officials, and is expected to live there for the rest of his life, or for as long as he remains a priest.

Rev. Patrick Hurley

In another case not mentioned in the statement, St. Mary’s officials acknowledged that another priest continued working in the monastery and rose to the rank of prior after being arrested and charged with purchasing cocaine in 1991.

According to a Daily Record story in 1991, the Rev. Patrick Hurley was charged with buying cocaine from a Denville drug ring. Lorenzo said the charges were dismissed later because Hurley agreed to undergo treatment. Hurley was named prior of the monastery two years ago, Lorenzo said, but stepped down earlier this year for personal reasons.
