Bishops To Learn Best Practices To Fight Sex Abuse


ROME, SESAWI.NET – THE Vatican is working to give bishops around the world information on the best ways to combat clergy sex abuse, teaming up with the Jesuit university in Rome to host a symposium on abuse and launch an Internet learning center.

The symposium next February will draw experts in psychiatry, church law and child protection programs. It is designed to help bishops draft guidelines on combating abuse that must be submitted to Rome by next year.

Vatican sex crimes prosecutor Monsignor Charles Scicluna told reporters Saturday that the symposium and the online database will help “give a credible and transparent and accountable response” to the clergy sex abuse scandal.
