Did you know that April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. The Archdiocesan Office of Ministerial Standards and Safe Environment’s mission is to work with our community to address the devastating societal problem of the sexual abuse of minors and vulnerable adults by implementing abuse prevention programs, immediately reporting allegations of abuse to law enforcement and/or child/adult protection officials, cooperating fully with their investigations, and helping those affected by abuse in their healing journey. We have been provided with these handouts “10 Tips for Protecting Children” and “A Rosary for Healing & Protection” as both a reminder on what we should look for and a way to pray for the victims. If you are interested in finding out more about the Safe Environment program here at OLG, contact our coordinator Jamie at jamiepohl@olgparish.org.
