Protecting Our Children

letter_hsafe_environmentere at the Cathedral, we pledge to provide a safe environment for our children and all those who are vulnerable. All priests, deacons, sisters, staff members, and all volunteers who have any contact whatsoever with children and other vulnerable persons are required to complete a Safe Environment Program. These same people receive background screenings in addition to education on how to make the safest environment possible.

Parents of our children are always welcome to ask questions and tour our facilities. Join in helping us end sexual abuse of children wherever it happens.
