Father Hoefgen returned to campus and was porter and guest house master. In 2002, Father Hoefgen was placed on the list of credibly accused Saint John's monks and later in the year wrote a letter of apology.

Hoefgen was an associate pastor at St. Boniface church in Cold Spring near St. Cloud in 1984 when police learned about the allegations of sexual abuse, according to court records. He was sent to St. Luke Institute in Maryland for treatment for several months and in 1985 took a position at St. Boniface Church in Hastings, which later merged with St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. Hoefgen left that post in 1992 when the victim filed a civil suit in Dakota County District Court.
