When the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago heard that a man under investigation for sexual abuse was living within their boundaries, it asked him to leave.

The Chicago Sun Times reported on Sept. 21 that the Rev. Richard McGrath, the former president of Providence Catholic High School in New Lenox, was residing at the St. John Stone Friary in Hyde Park. The friary is a mere 390 feet from the St. Thomas the Apostle grade school, and also is near a preschool and a day care center.
