Virginia Monk Removed Over NJ Allegations

Facebook

A monk who headed a Virginia abbey has been removed from his position over allegations in New Jersey of sexual misconduct.

The Rev. Luke Travers was replaced Wednesday after a letter was sent to church officials outlining sexual misconduct claims by two male former students at New Jersey’s Delbarton School, an elite prep school attended by Gov. Chris Christie’s son. Travers is the former headmaster of Delbarton School.

He had served as non-residential administrator of Mary Mother of the Church Abbey in Virginia since 2010, visiting a few days each month. The school owns and operates Benedictine College Preparatory school, but officials say he had no personal contact with students.

Abbey officials said Travers had returned to his New Jersey monastery. Messages to the abbey were not immediately returned.
