Safe Environment Curriculum - Letter to Parents

October 19, 2008
Dear Parents,
Our Catholic tradition has always affirmed the dignity of the human person as created in the image and likeness of God. Every person with whom we come in contact deserves to be seen by us with the eyes of God. We know that ministry with children and youth, in particular, is a sacred trust. We, at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs School are committed to preserve, at all times and in all places, this sacred trust which is rooted in our faith in Jesus Christ.
In 2003, the United States Bishops approved The Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People in an effort to protect children and youth from sexual abuse at all levels of church life and to restore trust in a Church scarred by the scandal of clergy and sexual abuse. Article 12 of the charter directs all dioceses to create programs and processes to teach children and youth about sexual abuse and its prevention. In the Archdiocese of New York, this training will be integrated this week October 20th - October 24th into the religious education program in our school.
We thank you for your support and interest as we partner to give our children the safest possible environment to grow in faith, in our parish, school and in our homes.
Rev. Antonio Almonte, pastor
Mr. Andrew G. Woods,principal
