The Diocese of Reno is committed to the safety of our children and vulnerable adults.
We are in full compliance with the Dallas Charter and remain diligent in maintaining this compliance.
Through the “Protecting God’s Children” program we train all adults who are employed as well as those who volunteer within our parishes and agencies who have contact with children. This training helps all to be more aware of how to protect children and vulnerable adults, and also the possible warning signs of abuse and neglect.
As well, each year all children within our Religious Education programs and within our schools are provided the opportunity to participate in Personal Safety.
Together, all of us working together, can help to create safe environments in our parish, schools, facilities and even beyond.
To report a bishop of sexual misconduct or of intentionally interfering in an abuse investigation, call or go online. Civil authorities will be informed if a crime may have been committed. Otherwise, reports are confidential.
