Safe Environment Resources
Working to Ensure Safe Environments for All
The Diocese of New Ulm, along with dioceses throughout the United States, has enacted policies to address sexual abuse in Church ministry and to help ensure safe environments for children and youth.
We recognize this as our responsibility, not as a one-time obligation or as a set of requirements to meet, but as a commitment to answer the call to protect all God's children and firmly establish a safe environment throughout Church ministry.
The Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People
“We re-affirm that we will assist in the healing of those who have been injured, will do all in our power to protect children and young people, and will work with our clergy, religious, and laity to restore trust and harmony in our faith communities, as we pray for the Kingdom of God to come, here on earth, as it is in heaven."
