Adding up our parish and school child protection efforts

It has been 11 years since the implementation of the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People.

The charter contains practical and pastoral steps that address allegations of sexual abuse, prevent future abuse, and help abuse victims through the healing process.

Over the past decade, more than 200,000 adults and more than 1 million children have undergone abuse awareness and prevention sessions in archdiocesan parishes and schools. More than 5,000 Virtus sessions have been conducted, making access to this important training easily available.

Additionally, the archdiocese continues to be one of the largest private organizations in California to fingerprint employees and volunteers 121,000 to date who work with our children.

For more information on our parish's Safeguard the Children program, June Ballada at (213) 236-4829; or Remy Baluyut at (323) 478-0001.
