Moving Forward in Faith: Renewing Our Commitment to Child Protection, Victim Assistance,
and the Integrity of the Priesthood

Archdiocese of Philadelphia issues the fourth in a series of informational bulletin inserts to the faithful

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia has released the fourth in a periodic series of bulletin inserts to all 268 parishes and published it on the Archdiocesan website (

All inserts focus on action steps being taken to advance the protection of children, assist victims, and ensure the integrity of the Priesthood.

The recently released document provides information about a new mandatory reporter training program being implemented for over 24,000 clergy, staff and volunteers. This training program, though not required by Pennsylvania law, is in addition to, as well as separate and distinct from, the Safe Environment Training already required for all clergy, staff, and volunteers working on behalf of the Archdiocese. It will be conducted by the Network of Victim Assistance, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, from June through November 2011.
