Protecting God’s Children:
Sexual Abuse Policies, Training and Resources

Click here to read Restoring Trust: Report on Sexual Abuse in the Archdiocese of Louisville (published February 8, 2019) > 

Introduction

No child or adult should ever experience abuse by anyone, especially a church minister. We all have the right to be treated with dignity and to expect our church to reflect the goodness of God in all of its dealings.

We hope that this information is helpful to all in our communities who are working to prevent and respond to childhood sexual abuse. We have tried to be as clear as possible about our assistance to victims, reporting procedures, and education and prevention efforts. Please let us know if you need further assistance or information by calling or emailing our victim assistance coordinator, Ms. Martine Siegel, at 502/636-1044; victimassistance@archlou.org or the Pastoral Center at 502/585-3291.

We must heed God’s call to care for the most vulnerable among us and to continue our efforts toward wholeness and health in dealing with sexual abuse.
