A Benedictine priest who has been prohibited from running a drug rehabilitation center after working with drug abusers for three years said he has been treated unfairly and is petitioning to join another order to continue his mission.
"I was forced to leave the center. I am eager to remain serving drug abusers," Fr. Francis Xavier Tran Van An, who gave the ownership papers of his center to the Benedictine order, told NCR. He has been banned from working at the center since January.
