St Paul-Mpls Archdiocese Flunks USCCB Child Protection Guidelines

Months of local controversy over proposed sex-abuse prevention programs in the Roman Catholic Church have left the Twin Cities archdiocese out of compliance with the U.S. bishops' child-protection guidelines, according to a national report released Thursday.

The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis was one of 22 U.S. dioceses — out of 191 surveyed — not fully meeting requirements of the bishops' guidelines, which require that dioceses offer "safe-environment" programs to all children, parents, educators, staff and clergy to help prevent abuse.

Fargo also failed to be in compliance with the requirements.

Amy Welborn of Open Book has comments and articles from the Washington Post, the Washington Times, Zenit and links to the audit and the John Jay Report.
