From The Pastor… 

Rev. Fr. Larry Urban, S.D.B.

Fr. Larry Urban, S.D.B., Pastor

Now is that time of year when we begin to get ready for a brand new school year and one of the things that goes along with that is the creating of a safe environment for our children and young people. We don’t need to go over the terrible tragedy – and sin – of the sexual abuse of children by Catholic priests. While this certainly is a black eye for the Church, one of the good things to come out of this in recent years is the realization that we all – both church and society in general – must learn to prevent abuse, to recognize abuse and to report it. The United States Conference of Bishops established in 2002 a Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People which directed action in a number of areas to create a safe environment for the children in our care. This includes Safe Environment Training for all those who have contact with children, which includes priests and deacons, teachers and counselors and aids, PSR teachers, youth leaders, Scout leaders, and so on. Our Archdiocese offers a lot of opportunities to get this training and the certification is good for three years. The Salesians also require their own version of training which must be renewed each year. We will offer this training (both Salesian and archdiocesan) with Brother Jerry from Archbishop Shaw on August 22nd at 7:00 PM in the Family Life Center. Again this is required for all persons who have contact with children in their activities here at St. John Bosco. Be sure to save the date!

God bless!
