A Promise to Protect
Occasionally, parishioners and parents of Catholic school students will inquire about the safety of our parishes and schools when it comes to prevention of child sexual abuse.  Please see the following link (PDF doc.) to find a list of Frequently Asked Questions concerning the commitment of our Diocese to protect all minors and vulnerable adults within our care.  Also, please visit our the Accountability section of our diocesan website (link).  Creating and maintaining safe environments is not just the responsibility of those who work in our parishes and schools, it is everyone’s job!
