Brother Raimond Rose is an ordained member of Chicago’s Christian Brothers of the Midwest and taught high school at Catholic schools in Minnesota, New York, North Dakota, Wisconsin and California for decades beginning in the 1960s. Reports of Brother Rose sexually assaulting students made their way to the Christian Brothers as early as 1966, and yet he continued to teach and travel with students on overnight retreats for years.

By 2009, at least 20 lawsuits had been filed against both Br. Rose and the Christian Brothers Order alleging Rose used his position as a teacher to sexually assault victims, and that the Order did nothing to protect students from future abuse after learning of his early attacks. Brother Rose was not removed from active ministry until 2002, nearly 40 years after the Christian Brothers first learned he had abused students. As of 2009, Brother Rose continued to live in a Christian Brothers Community in Chicago. It is believed Br. Rose is deceased.
