"Since 2002, the Church in the United States has experienced a crisis without precedent in our times. The sexual abuse of children and young people by some deacons, priests, and bishops, and the ways in which the crimes and sins were addressed, have caused enormous pain, anger and confusion. ... [W]e re-affirm our deep commitment to creating a safe environment within the Church for children and youth."


- Preamble, USCCB Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People
