Safe Environment

Sexual misconduct by clergy, Church personnel, Church leaders and volunteers is contrary to Christian morals, doctrine and Canon Law. It is never acceptable. We recognize that sexual misconduct may have devastating consequences for the victims and their families, for the Church community, and for the transgressor.

While this subject is troubling to all of us, basic information about sexual misconduct in the ministerial setting is needed in order to protect the most vulnerable among us and assure the integrity of ministerial relationships.

The Diocese of Green Bay pledges its commitment to programs and policies that:

  1. Protect all children, youth, and individuals at risk
  2. Heal the hearts and hopes of all affected
  3. Foster ongoing vigilance in education
