In Dallas, 2002, at their annual meeting, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops drafted a landmark document in response to the crisis of sexual abuse of children in the Church.
This document setting forth their agreed upon responsibilities in combating the problem, was entitled the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People.
It is the mission of the Office of Child and Youth
Protection to support diocesan parishes and schools in creating safe
environments for the children entrusted to our care.
