Jesus Welcomes The Children
"And they were bringing children to him, that he might touch them; and the disciples rebuked them.
But when Jesus saw it he was indignant, and said to them,
"Let the children come to me, do not hinder them;
for to such belongs the kingdom of God.
Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God
like a child shall not enter it."
Our children are our most treasured of all God's creatures. The Los Angeles Archdiocese program,
Safeguard the Children
works to protect our children from those who would
do harm to them in the Church. OLM supports this program by holding annual training sessions and participating in the Archdiocesan-wide screening process of all volunteers.
An excerpt from a letter from the Cardinal,
"Sexual misconduct by clergy, Church personnel, church leaders and volunteers is contrary to Christian morals, doctrine and
Canon Law. It is never acceptable."
