Print this page

​​All parishes and the archdiocesan high schools that are unaffiliated with parishes are required to have a Safeguard​ the Children Committee.

The Safeguard the Children Committee plays a crucial role in assuring that the safeguard initiatives found in the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People are a priority. The committee oversees implementation of the archdiocesan policies and procedures at the location, supports safe environment programs and resources, promotes parish and school site safety, reviews safe environment programs and events at parishes and schools, assists in the annual United States Conference of Cat​holic Bishops safe environment audit process, and promotes awareness of April as Natio​nal Child Abuse Prevention Month.
