DIOCESE TO LAUNCH ANTI-ABUSE SEMINAR (‘Protecting God’s Children’ targets prevention)

Saying the Diocese of Rockville Centre must educate all who work for it to the 'harms of child abuse and what we must do to prevent it, Bishop William Murphy is asking all Catholic Church employees and volunteers to attend special training seminars.  The Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People, adopted last year by American bishops in Dallas as a response to the sex abuse scandal, requires all dioceses to institute these safe environment types of programs.
