Diocese of Columbus
|General Information||Pre-Registration Instructions||Scheduled Training Sessions||
It is the goal of the Diocese of Columbus to make the Church a place of safety: A place of prayer, ministry, and comfort. Everyone who enters our churches, schools, or facilities must be confident in this. Not one child or young person should suffer from abuse while at Church. In order to assure the safety of our children and young people, the Diocese of Columbus has enacted a complete program of protection. As part of this program, the Diocese of Columbus will provide appropriate, just, and pastoral care for anyone who has suffered the crime of sexual abuse of a minor at the hands of diocesan clergy or church employees or volunteers. The Diocese of Columbus will report any and all allegations of abuse reported to it to the authorities and will cooperate fully with those authorities.
Help is available: The Diocese of Columbus
wants to hear from anyone who has suffered. If you
wish to report an allegation of abuse or need pastoral
and/or clinical care in order to begin or continue the process of
healing from sexual abuse as a child
at the hands of a member of the clergy
or a church employee or volunteer, simply call the diocesan Victims'
Assistance Coordinator. You can contact the Victims'
Assistance Coordinator, the Rev. Msgr. Stephan J.
