Dr. James Melsa, the chair of the Board of Trustees of Benedictine University, posted a letter on the University’s website in response to the legal complaint filed on June 22 by seven monks of St. Procopius Abbey against the Board of Trustees. Dr. Melsa’s letter contains numerous factual inaccuracies. Indeed, it is a good example of why, after three years of trying to resolve the dispute, the monks were forced to turn to a court in order to resolve it. For an understanding of the dispute, we refer you to the nine-page complaint which can be found here. A press release from the monks can be read here.
