Seminary rector placed on leave following allegation
Catholic World News - July 17, 2012
The rector of the largest residential high school seminary in the nation has been placed on administrative leave following an accusation of sexual misconduct with a minor. The alleged incident took place 25 years ago.
Father Dennis Druggan, OFM Cap., has served as president and rector of St. Lawrence Seminary High School in Wisconsin since 1997. He denies the allegation.

The idea of recruiting young and immature 13 and 14-year old boys for "high school seminary" education for the priesthood was always a very dubious notion and has largely been discredited and abandoned. Why is this still going on?

As a high school seminary alumnus (Holy Name Seminary Madison WI '87), I am surprised that there are any still in existence in the US. I hope an pray these charges are false.
