The “Protecting God’s Children” Program is a very pro-active, positive, professional approach to preventing child sexual abuse. This Program is now part of diocesan policy to establish a “safe environment” for members of our parish.
While “Protecting God’s Children” sessions are primarily for all staff and volunteers who work with children, they are also open to any parent or person from the parish who wishes to attend.
