The Diocese of St George’s-in-Grenada is committed to the welfare and protection of children and vulnerable people. The diocese is determined to ensure that its schools, churches and other institutions become environments where children and vulnerable people can be, can feel safe, and can thrive.
With this commitment in mind a workshop on the Virtus’ Protecting God’s Children programme was conducted by Tricia Syms of the Family Life Commission of the Archdiocese of Port of Spain for the clergy. The session was held March 3 at Norton Hall, St George’s.
Virtus’ Protecting God’s Children is a four-hour introductory workshop implemented by the Bishops of the Antilles Episcopal Conference (AEC) to raise awareness about the reality of child sexual abuse.
