Safe Church: Commitment, awareness and action for cultural change
Thursday, 5 November, 7:00 pm–8:30 pm AEDT
In honour of James Robert Cardinal Knox, Fifth Archbishop of Melbourne
Catholic Theological College is proud to present the Knox Public Lecture 2020. This year’s lecture will be an online event presented via Zoom.
Presented by Sheree Limbrick
In May 2019 Catholic Professional Standards Ltd (CPSL) published the National Catholic Safeguarding Standards. More than 20 church entities have been audited to date to assess the extent to which they are implementing necessary safeguards for children, with audits revealing a strong commitment and dedicated action to create child safe environments. Since late 2019, CPSL has been working to expand the Standards to include protections for adults engaging with Church ministry. This lecture will explore some of the trends and findings emerging from CPSL’s audit work, as well as the directions of the groundbreaking framework for the safeguarding of adults.Register now For more information
