EPARCHY OF OUR LADY OF LEBANON OF LOS ANGELES SAFE ENVIRONMENT POLICY

The Eparchy’s Safe Environment Program is designed to prevent abuse of children and young people. The Safe Environment Program provides education, screening, and training to ensure safety for children, youth, families, and parishes of the Eparchy.

Our Mission

The mission of the Safe Environment Program is to maintain the safety of children, youth, families, and communities in all parishes, missions, and pastoral activities of the Eparchy. This mission is grounded in the biblical teaching that all human beings are in the image and likeness of God, revealing the love of God for all creation.

The mission of the Safe Environment Program reflects the commitment to Catholic teaching, namely that all human life, at every age, is to be respected, nurtured, and protected. The teachings of the Church call for action on the part of Catholics to safeguard the life, health, and faith of all people.

All Clergy, Religious Men and Women, Employees and Volunteers of the Eparchy are required to fulfill all mandatory Safe Environment Program requirements
