In support of National Child Abuse Prevention Month beginning April 1, 2019, we invite you to visit the web-links below and review the following resources. The USCCB has created many NEW resources that are powerful and effective in promoting awareness and healing of childhood abuse. It is well worth your time to review them and see how best they can be used in your parish/school.
• United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB):
o Child Abuse Prevention Month
o Abuse Prevention Resources
o Novena for the Protection and Healing of Abuse – April 1-9, 2019
• Archdiocese of Atlanta Office of Child & Youth Protection:
o Child Abuse Prevention Resources
• Prevent Child Abuse Georgia:
o Child Abuse Prevention Toolkit
We urge you to share this information with your parish/school community during the month of April and beyond. Please know that we are here to assist you with any questions or suggestions. Thank you for all you do to keep our kids safe!
