Statement from Bishop Burbidge on Child Abuse Prevention Month

With all people of good will, we mark April as National Child Abuse Prevention Month through prayer and efforts aimed at protecting the most precious gift of our children. Annually, nearly 700,000 children are neglected or abused in the United States. This is an evil that all of us—and in a particular way, the Church—must continually work to end.
