Safe Environment

Our Commitment to Protecting Our Future

The Archdiocese of Milwaukee and St. Joseph Parish is committed to maintaining safe environments for children to learn, pray, and grow.  Our Safe Environment Office supports our parishes and schools and maintains the compliance of our archdiocese in our Promise to Protect, Pledge to Heal. We expect all of our clergy, staff and volunteers to be part our commitment to prevent abuse in our parishes, schools and communities. We do this through education, awareness and accountability.

As Catholics, we are all tasked with participating in ensuring that every child is able to feel safe in our parishes and schools. We invite you to explore what we are doing at the archdiocesan level, at the parish level, and what we ask of every adult  in our parishes to do to help us maintain a Safe Environment to remember our past, protect our present and hope for our future.
