Safeguarding God's Children
Date: Saturday, May 20, 2017 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Dear Clergy, Wardens and Staff,
There is no question what a precious treasure our children are. As leaders in the Diocese of South Carolina, we have a moral, spiritual and canonical obligation to exercise due diligence in assuring that their faith formation happens in a safe environment. History teaches us clearly that this is not an outcome we can take for granted. There are steps we can and must take to assure the joy of their Christian Faith is not stolen from those in our care.
It is with that purpose in mind that the Diocese offers the “Safeguarding God’s Children” workshops across the Diocese. The workshops continue to be led by Mrs. Polly Sosnowski, whose years of service as a licensed clinical social worker in South Carolina make her a marvelous resource for this training. The training provided will cover the necessary material to fulfill both diocesan canons and local parish guidelines. The next workshop is offered:
Saturday, May 20, 10am – 1pm
Christ-St. Paul’s Church, 4981 Chapel Road, Hollywood, SC 29449.
To register: Tapley King or Lynn Fleming, 843-889-2820, email@example.com,
Continental breakfast provided
Call 843-532-3710 if you need any additional information.
If you have anyone in your parish who works regularly with children or youth, they must have this training. If you would be interested in being the host for such a workshop yourself, that would be blessing to your own parish as well as others nearby. On-line training is also a viable option for some parishes. Call and we can discuss what would work best for you, but do make sure your staff and volunteers are appropriately trained.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation in helping make the Diocese of South Carolina a safe place for all our children.
