The Church in Service of the Development of the Safety of Children


The Department of Pastoral Theology and the Child Dignity Center plan to study the state of awareness of clergy and laity of The Metropolis of L'viv of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church on the issue of protection of minors. Painful global experience of sexual violence against minors creates a need for an action to prevent such cases in Ukraine. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to create a safety culture. In this reason the Department of Pastoral Theology and the Child Dignity Center plan to develop and conduct appropriate surveys. The Department of Pastoral Theology and the Child Dignity Center also plan to hold educational roundtables with the clergy of the dioceses in order to: bring the latest information on the topic of child protection; explore the real pastoral experience in this area, compare the understanding of a safety culture in the clergy and laity. In addition, round tables will help to form a motivated group of priests (about 30 people) for in-depth study of the topic of child protection on the basis of special developed educational material. So these active and competent priests will be able to conduct an educational activity in their dioceses.
