As Christian adults, we have a moral and legal responsibility and are entrusted by God with the spiritual, emotional and physical well-being of minors and vulnerable adults. As minors and vulnerable adults participate in activities within or sponsored by our diocese, it is our commitment to provide an environment that is safe and nurturing. The Safe Environment Program includes:
Required education for all employees (clergy, religious, and laity), those volunteers and others regularly involved with minors, and parents, as to the issue of abuse of children including the detection, prevention, and reporting of child abuse.
Thorough screening and evaluation of the background of all diocesan employees – clergy, religious and laity – and those volunteers who work with children and young people.
Holding those who minister in the name of the Diocese of Venice – all diocesan employees (clergy, religious and laity) and those volunteers who work with children and young people – to Christ-centered and professional codes of conduct.
