CCD targets abuse

Sun Chronicle

The Catholic Church's effort to prevent sexual abuse in the future is now reaching its youngsters.

Both the Diocese of Fall River and the Archdiocese of Boston are in the midst of implementing new abuse awareness programs in Catholic schools and in parish religious education programs as called for by American bishops.
`` We are all mandated to provide safe-environment education to children,'' said Arlene McNamee, director of Catholic Social Services in the Fall River Diocese.
