Audit: Diocese in compliance


Thursday, January 05, 2006
SPRINGFIELD - For the third time in three years, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Springfield has been found to be in full compliance with the U.S. bishops' policy to prevent abuse of minors, the diocese announced yesterday.

The diocese also announced that Patricia Finn McManamy has been hired as the diocesan director of counseling, prevention and victim services, replacing Laura Failla Reilly, who resigned in the summer.

The diocese was notified recently that the Gavin Group of Boston determined it was in compliance with the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People, the policy created by U.S. bishops several years ago to prevent abuse of minors.
