New Website Highlights Steps to Confronting Clergy Sex Abuse

Posted inLocal News

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has launched a new website to share information on prevention, protection and accountability relating to the clergy sex abuse crisis.

“The purpose of this website is to serve as a source of information and provide resources regarding the safety of children and vulnerable persons, victim assistance, and frequently asked questions,” said Monsignor Brian Bransfield, General Secretary, USCCB.

This website reinforces the importance of prevention, protection and accountability in response to the ongoing work to eradicate clergy sexual abuse. Visitors can browse through the pages of the Holy Father’s Motu Proprio, the 2002 Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People and its progress, as well as the new reforms set to be discussed during the Spring General Assembly of bishops in Baltimore.
