Safeguard the Children & Youth Parish Committee

The Office of Safeguard the Children and the formation of Safeguard the Children Parish Committees were mandated by Cardinal Roger Mahony in 2002. The parish committees are foundational in ensuring the safe environment of parishes and schools throughout the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. These permanent committees coordinate initiatives such as education opportunities, site evaluations and local presentations by speakers including police, nurses and therapists. The committees are also responsible for implementing archdiocesan safe environment policies and procedures. An emphasis is being put on awareness.
