Committed to the safety of children
The tragic issue of the sexual abuse of minors affects every part of society, and every profession.
While pledging zero tolerance for abusers in ministry or employment within the Diocese of Harrisburg, we also pledge our dedication to the healing and reconciliation of victims of sexual abuse as a minor. In fulfillment of the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People, adopted by the United States bishops in 2002, our Youth Protection Program provides for education and screening, outreach to victims and families, prudent and prompt inquiry into each accusation, open communication, and due process for all involved.
