Prevention. Protection. Accountability.

Creating a safe environment for all.


Our Mission

The Church is committed to Prevention, Protection and Accountability in creating a safe environment for all. Together we can conquer the evils of clergy sexual abuse and hold all individuals accountable, no matter what their rank. With additional reforms, building upon the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People, and in union with Pope Francis’s Motu Proprio, the American Catholic Church stands united against the scourge of sexual abuse as we continue on a path of reconciliation and healing.
