Safe Church

Bishop Rickel has recently implemented a new program required for all active clergy, whether parochial or non stipendiary, in addition to youth workers, volunteers, and vestry/bishop's committee members to raise awareness concerning issues of sexual and emotional abuse, and to provide tools for prevention that we can all use to protect our children from harm, promote safety and bring healing. This program is mandatory for all those who share their gifts of ministry with our children, as well as for retired clergy who regularly work in a parish or mission, and is open to interested parishioners as well.
