they gained access to children so you can learn what you can do to stop them. You

happening to someone else’s child.
Together as a parish and as a community we are the solution to protecting children
from the terrible problem of child sexual abuse. We can make a difference and if our
efforts here at St. Catherine’s prevent even one child from abuse…..it is worth it!!!
