I have worked to create a "culture of safety" for children and young people in the Diocese of Paterson. The protection of our youth, children and vulnerable adults is a constant focus and priority in the Catholic Church.
Throughout the Diocese, we diligently work to ensure that safety is our first consideration. To that end, we have strong programs, procedures and policies in place and we carefully track and document compliance with these requirements.
"I ask anyone who has been the victim of child sexual abuse by any volunteer or employee of the Diocese of Paterson to come forward."
