Safeguard the Children Parish Committee Handbook:

The goal of Archdiocese of Los Angeles Office of Safeguard the Children has been to support and provide training and resources for the Safeguard the Children Parish Committees which are the foundation of our efforts to protect children and young people from child sexual abuse.  The Archdiocese of Los Angeles' Safeguard the Children Parish Committee Handbook has been created to help parishes and schools to fulfill this role.
