  Safeguarding All God's Family Safeguarding All God's Family
 
 

 

The goal of the Safeguarding All of God's Family program of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee is to protect our children and all in the church family from sexual abuse and related dangers.

All employees and anyone who works with children more than once a semester or who chaperones a fieldtrip or an overnight must complete a criminal background check and participate in Safeguarding All of God’s Family training. This is provided by St. Dominic’s numerous times throughout the year. In addition, parish members may complete training at another site. For a list of sites, as well as registration information, please visit the Archdiocese of Milwaukee's Web site.  There you will also find valuable information about child sexual abuse, as well as our Archdiocese’s response to child abuse.
 
In addition to the background check and training requirement, all all employees and anyone who works with children more than once a semester must read and acknowledge two documents: First, read the parish policy, Safe Environment Commitment, then sign the Acknowledgement Form, and agree to comply with parish policies; second, please read and sign the Archdiocese of Milwaukee's Code of Ethical Standards. This is to ensure that all children who are part of any activities at St. Dominic Parish are safe.

Amy Whittenberger, director of administrative services, along with Debbie Caputo, administrative assistant for Lifelong Faith Formation, administrate and oversee the implementation of this program at St. Dominic’s. Please contact either Amy or Debbie 262-781-3480 with any questions.

Restricted Diocesan Priests due to Substantiated Reports of Sexual Abuse of a Minor --
 

A PRAYER FOR HEALING
Victims of Abuse
God of endless love,
ever caring, ever strong,
always present, always just:
You gave your only Son
to save us by the blood of his cross.
Gentle Jesus, shepherd of peace,
join to your own suffering
the pain of all who have been hurt
in body, mind, and spirit
by those who betrayed the trust placed in them.
Hear our cries as we agonize
over the harm done to our brothers and sisters.
Breathe wisdom into our prayers,
soothe restless hearts with hope,
steady shaken spirits with faith:
Show us the way to justice and wholeness,
enlightened by truth and enfolded in your mercy.
Holy Spirit, comforter of hearts,
heal your people’s wounds
and transform our brokenness.
Grant us courage and wisdom, humility and grace,
so that we may act with justice
and find peace in you.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen

 

 Archdiocese of Milwaukee Clergy Sexual Abuse Policy

GENERAL PRINCIPLE: There is a sacred relationship, which exists between the Church and its members, whether they be adult or child. Sexual abuse, sexual misconduct, sexual assault, and/or sexual exploitation, when it occurs within the context of the Church, creates a tragic reality which misrepresents the Good News to those who have been victimized. Each and every instance of sexual violation of those who are the most vulnerable among us is a matter of the gravest concern and calls for an organized Archdiocesan response that healing may occur and the safety of the community be assured.

REPORTING ABUSE: Reports of sexual abuse of a minor can be made to the Sexual Abuse Prevention and Response Services Office at 414-725-2232. Individuals are also encouraged to take their reports directly to civil authorities.

ASSISTANCE: Out of pastoral concern for the victim/survivor of sexual abuse, referrals for assistance with costs of therapy will be offered even prior to the conclusion of any formal investigation and finding of fact.

REPORTING TO AUTHORITIES: Every report of sexual abuse of a minor, regardless of when the offense occurred, will be taken seriously. When the allegation is against a person who is still alive, whether they are currently in ministry or not, all reports will be handed over to the district attorney of the county in which the offense took place. The Archdiocese commits itself to a policy of cooperation with the civil officials who are charged with handling these matters.

INVESTIGATIONS: If the civil authorities cannot proceed with criminal action for any reason and the case is returned to the Archdiocese, there will be a thorough investigation of allegations using an established process which includes an outside adjudicator. The cleric will be temporarily removed from any ministry assignment while the investigation is underway. The adjudicator will take whatever steps are needed to arrive at a finding of fact in the case. The archdiocese commits itself to full cooperation in this adjudicatory review process.

FINAL DISPOSITION: In every case, upon conviction, plea of guilty, or determination by the outside adjudication process that a cleric has sexually abused a minor, he will be permanently removed from active ministry and divested of authority to perform ministerial duties.
