This is a fine arrangement, anything as long as the city of Canon City has no input or control of the Abbey.

It it a sad day that the abbey is no longer a fuctioning educational institution, another fine catholic private school lost in an era where public schools fall short of educating our young.

Attending the Abbey in 1966-67 was a true Lord of the Flies experience.

I have been happy ever since I graduated from this hellhole of a prep school. Beatings with boards and straps, tiny minds trying to pound us into clones of the thimble ringing monks who beat us. Women haters and life wasters teaching children. What a horrible experience it was. No privacy, no right to question, and no freedom to become what you wanted. It was filled with creeps who could not make it on the outside who were our mentors. It was a grand day when it closed.

John Patrick Murphy - I agree with your assessment 100%. The faculty were cruel, sadists; there was no way to stop them.

I was interned at the Canon City Abbey in the 60s; I did not experience sex-abuse, per-say, but I was mentally and physically abused by being paddled on my butt, with pants down around my ancles, bending over in front of the class. I was hit with frat-paddles, a razor-strap, pool cue etc. The coup de grāce was on "Hell Night." I was blindfolded and forced to run - full gait - into sharp, metal-edged stairs on a rising stairwell where I received a severe gash on my right shin which bled, and caused an egg-sized knot-bump under the skin which bothers me to this day. This is the first forum I've found to vent, thanks. W.C. If any "priests" from that era see this, I triple-dog-dare you to respond!
