Archbishop Chaput Joined by 150 Archdiocesan Students to Mark National Child Abuse Prevention Month

This morning, Archbishop Chaput was joined by approximately 150 elementary, secondary, and special education students from schools throughout the Archdiocese. Together, they participated in an event to mark our local Church’s observance of National Child Abuse Prevention Month.
The Archbishop spoke about the importance of ongoing efforts to prevent abuse and re-affirmed the Archdiocese’s commitment to creating and maintaining school and parish environments that are safe. The students then planted a “Pinwheels for Prevention” garden. Those blue and silver pinwheels will be displayed outside the Archdiocesan Pastoral Center through the remainder of the month as a demonstration of solidarity with all those working to stop child abuse.
