    Child Safety Training

                                       

     Child sexual abuse is a worldwide public health issue. Child abuse,  particularly child sexual abuse, is reprehensible-especially when the  wrongdoer is affiliated with the Church.
                                           
    The Diocese of Arlington has  provided training for volunteers and employees in recognizing and  reporting child abuse since 1991. In 2004 Bishop Loverde selected  "Protecting God's Children" as mandatory training for all employees of  the diocese and all volunteers with substantial contact with children.
