Annual Audit

Open communication is a critical element of healing and rebuilding the trust of a community wounded by the silence of the past.  We remain committed to presenting a candid picture of our efforts to respond to this crisis and prevent the abuse of children.  Through the information provided in this section, we seek to present a clear, understandable picture of the progress the Archdiocese has made in terms of our ongoing efforts to comply with Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People, the child protection policy adopted by the Bishops in 2002, and the funds used to pay for sexual abuse settlements and related costs.
