Msgr. Stephen Rossetti gives conference in Munich on Child Protection

Msgr. Stephen Rossetti is a member of the Scientific Advisory board of the Centre for Child Protection of the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome. He attended their annual meeting in Munich on Nov 7th and the next day he gave a day long presentation to over 100 diocesan officials who work for the Catholic Church in Germany. He spoke primarily on the clinical experience and research data relating to priests who sexually abuse minors. He shared some of the mistakes that have been made by Church institutions in dealing with this terrible tragedy in the past and what we can learn from these mistakes. He recommended that the Catholic Church around the world adopt aggressive child safe policies and thus making the entire Church a safer place for children.
