    Officials from Mount Saint Benedict will contact a woman who claims to have been raped by a priest as a child.

    The woman, via a Facebook video, made allegations against an individual who used to be associated with the monastery and St Bede’s Vocational School.

    The officials, also via the social media platform, say the claims are deeply disturbing and are strongly condemning harassment and abuse of any kind.

    They note the monastery will continue to monitor its policies and controls to prevent incidents of this nature.
