Many of our children are being left unsupervised on the Cathedral grounds, especially on Sundays during Mass or Christian Faith Formation. Our diocesan policy is very clear about Protecting God's Children. Our mandatory Ethics and Integrity in Ministry training allows zero tolerance for error. Children must be supervised at all times by their parents or a responsible adult.
Of special concern are children unsupervised outside of Bishops Hall during Sunday breakfasts or in the Donahue Center Gym. Remember, we are a downtown parish surrounded by major streets and within walking distance of the Salvation Army and ARCH. It takes 30 seconds to ruin a child's life.
