April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

Since 2002, the Catholic Church in the U.S.A. has followed a set of rules initiated by the bishops of the country and approved by the Vatican for dealing with sexual abuse of minors by priest or deacons: The Essential Norms for Diocesan/eparchial Policies Dealing with Allegations of Sexual abuse of Minors by Priests or Deacons. In the Archdiocese of Miami, the policy includes vulnerable adults. Every U.S. diocese/eparchy must meet a specific set of requirements. We will share a couple of them each week throughout April during Child Abuse Prevention Month. The Archdiocese of Miami is in compliance and has been each of the 17 years since the inception of the Charter.

  • To remove offending priests or deacons permanently from Church ministry.
  • To prohibit the transfer of offending priests or deacons for ministerial assignment in another parish, diocese or eparchy.
  • To receive necessary background information before permitting a priest or deacon to exercise ministry in a diocese of eparchy.

Abril es el Mes de la Prevención del Abuso Infantil

Desde 2002, la Iglesia Católica en los Estados Unidos ha seguido un conjunto de reglas creadas por los obispos del país y aprobadas por el Vaticano para enfrentar el abuso sexual de menores por parte de sacerdotes o diáconos: Estatuto para la protección de niños y jóvenes de los obispos de los EE.UU. Cada diócesis / eparquía en los Estados Unidos debe cumplir con unos requisitos específicos. Vamos a compartir un par de ellos cada semana durante el mes de abril, el mes de prevención del abuso infantil. La Arquidiócesis de Miami está en cumplimiento y ha estado en complimiento cada uno de los 17 años desde la creación de estas normas.

  • Retirar a los sacerdotes o diáconos ofensores permanentemente del ministerio de la Iglesia.
  • Prohibir la transferencia de sacerdotes o diáconos ofensores a otra parroquia, diócesis o eparquía.
  • Recibir los antecedentes necessarios antes de permitir que un sacerdote o diácono ejerza el ministerio en una diócesis o eparquía.
