Fort Augustus Abbey School ( Sins of Our Fathers – BBC Scotland )

Share Button

An excellent video, and very informative, particularly in light of the fact that Fort August Abbey is  the school at which Father Robert MacKenzie, a former Benedictine monk,  taught at in Scotland.

For reasons unknown in 1988  Father MacKenzie relocated to Canada.   Either at that time or shortly thereafter he landed in the Archdiocese of Regina, Saskatchewan.  It seems that at some point after his arrival in Saskatchewan he decided he no longer wished to be a Benedictine monk and became a diocesan priest.  As far as I can tell he is now  incardinated in the Archdiocese of Regina.  He is also retired and living in Cupar, Saskatchewan.

In March 2017 it was learned that there are sex abuse allegations against Father MacKenzie which date to his years teaching at Fort August Abbey.    Attempts are now under way to have him extradited to face charges in Scotland.

Any further information on Father MacKenzie’s years in Saskatchewan most welcome.

Please keep the complainants in your prayers.

Please note too the following article regarding Jimmy Saville’s links to the Abbey school:
