Tucson's Catholic Diocese passes audit on sex abuse prevention


TUCSON, Ariz. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Tucson reports successfully passing an audit on compliance with policies to prevent sexual abuse.

In a memo sent to parishioners, Bishop Gerald Kicanas said the December audit found the diocese followed the norms established by the U-S Conference of Catholic Bishops.

The audit examined record-keeping on programs and protocol for victim outreach, how allegations of abuse were reported and the creation of safe environments at schools and parishes for children.
