All people must be safe from sexual abuse when they are at home, away from home, in school, in church – everywhere. May our faithful adherence to our Policy and Code help both young and old be secure in the knowledge that they are loved and cherished by our God and by the Church. Knowing this, may we live together in faith, trust, love and joy. And may what we do as the Church truly help rid our society of the scourge of sexual abuse.
