Creating a Safe Environment for Our Children
About the Office of Safe Environment
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops created the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People in June 2002, which addresses allegations of sexual abuse of minors by Catholic clergy. This Charter led to the creation of the Office of Safe Environment at the Diocese of Owensboro. The Office of Safe Environment works for the protection of children, young people and other vulnerable individuals who have been entrusted to the care of our parishes, schools, religious-education classes and other diocesan programs.The Charter also includes guidelines for reconciliation, healing, accountability and prevention of future acts of abuse.
