ARCHDIOCESAN CHILD PROTECTION POLICY
Child protection is a priority of the Archdiocese of Washington, which has one of the most comprehensive child protection policies in the nation. This policy calls for prevention, quick response and pastoral care. All employees and volunteers who have substantial contact with children must attend child protection workshops and undergo a criminal background check, and those who suspect child abuse must report it to the authorities. The policy (in English and Spanish), workshop schedules and reporting, fingerprinting and other information are available online at www.adw.org (click on “Protecting Our Children”), and from our parish child protection coordinator, Mary McAdams (301-530-1640). Anyone who has experienced harm from a person working or volunteering for a Church entity is encouraged to report this to the authorities and to contact the Archdiocesan Director of Child Protection Services, Ms. Marcia Zvara, 301-853-5328, so we may provide assistance.
