Protecting Our Children, 
What We’re DoingThe Diocese of Stockton


ha had a policy to
address issues of sexual
abuse of minors since 1987. This policy has
undergone periodic revision, most recently
in 2009.

For information on the
various training components and protocols established to
protect our children and young people, contact
the Training Coordinator:



“The sexual abuse of children and young people by some priests and bishops, and the ways in which we bishops addressed these crimes and sins, have caused enormous pain, anger, and confusion. Innocent victims and their families have suffered terribly. . . . From the depths of our hearts, we bishops express great sorrow and profound regret for what the Catholic people are enduring.”

(Preamble, U.S.C.C.B. Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People)
