Diocese of Raleigh in Compliance with National Charter
The Diocese of Raleigh has been informed that it is in compliance with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People. The notification to Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge came from The Gavin Group, Inc, an independent agency, hired by the USCCB’s National Review Board to survey the nation’s dioceses to ensure they are following the Charter adopted by the US Bishops in 2002. Since the audits began in 2003, the Diocese of Raleigh has been found to be in compliance each year of the audit.
“I’m very pleased the Diocese has received this affirmation regarding our Child and Youth Protection policies and procedures,” Bishop Burbidge said. “We remain committed to providing a safe environment for all children and young people in our parishes, schools and all Diocesan facilities.”
The Diocesan Policies and Procedures and the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People are available on the Diocesan web site.
