As part of an ongoing civil lawsuit, the once-secret priest file of Richard Jeub was publicly released today. Throughout his 40+ years as a priest of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, several survivors, including adult women and children, have come forward alleging sexual abuse by Jeub.
In late 1969, early 1970, Jeub and another child abuser, Father Jerome Kern, switched parishes. Kern left his assignment at St. Mark’s in St. Paul to become assistant pastor at Our Lady of Grace in Edina, while Jeub left his position at Our Lady of Grace, to work at St. Mark’s. While under restriction, Jeub continued to exercise ministry as a lector and communion minister at a Duluth Diocese parish in Deerwood, MN until at least 2009.
