Safe Environment

In response to the Dallas Charter implemented by the USCCB in 2002, the Diocese of Lexington strives to provide a safe environment for all children and vulnerable adults within our parishes, schools and diocesan apostolates.  On-going education is provided to clergy, employees, parents and children to raise awareness of warning signs that may indicate inappropriate behavior and abuse. 

In addition to prevention education, the Diocese of Lexington stands ready to assist any victim of child sexual abuse by a cleric or lay employee by providing the necessary assistance for healing of mind, spirit and body.
