Jesuits ran 1 residential school in Canada, located in Spanish, Ont.

Over a third of the Jesuits who are “credibly accused” of sexually abusing minors worked in First Nations or at the Spanish Indian Residential School in Spanish, Ont.

The religious order released a list of names, along with the places they were assigned to work, on Monday as part of an attempt to be more transparent and accountable.

Among the 27 priests and brothers named, 10 worked at the residential school in Spanish and/or in First Nations communities.

“I look at the list. I’m glad that it’s an opening but it says credible allegations,” said Rheena Diabo, chair of the finance administration committee at the St. Francis Xavier Mission in Kahnawà:ke, a Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) community south of Montreal.
