Did You Know? Child Abuse Prevention Month is the perfect time to recognize the vision and efforts of the Safeguard the Children Parish Committees throughout the Los Angeles Archdiocese. The Committee for Safeguard the Children has been established in all the parishes and schools in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. A primary goal of these committees is to ensure that all children and youth experience safe environments at all parish and school activities and events. These also help inform all parish and school personnel, committees, ministries and volunteers of the available resources for educating their constituencies on all aspects of child and youth negligence and abuse prevention.
