My Brothers & Sisters in Christ:

The Archdiocese of San Antonio is unconditionally committed to the protection of children and youth within our community. In order to assure the children and youth are protected from harm, it has been mandated that all adults who minister to children must receive abuse prevention education. It is also mandated that all children and youth enrolled in religious education or in Catholic Schools be trained in abuse prevention. The archdiocese has developed Safe Environment Training for children, youth, and adults.

The Archdiocese of San Antonio cannot protect all children and youth alone; it is important that all Catholics ensure that we are following the mandate of Jesus, and “Let the little children come to me.” All adults, including parents, are encouraged to receive Safe Environment Training at your local parish or Catholic School. Children and youth need trusted and loving adults in whom they can confide any concern or fear.
