Fiji Church issues clergy sexual abuse guidelines

Response and Healing, a set of principles and procedures for responding to complaints of sexual abuse by Clergy and Religious of the the Suva Archdiocese, was launched last week by Archbishop Petero Mataca at a diocesan clergy workshop held at Pacific Regional Seminary.

In launching the guidelines, Arhcbishop Mataca requested that they be studied by all in ministry, whether priests, religious or laity involved in teaching, hostel supervision and so on.

He thanked those who had worked very hard to prepare the document.
