|NSW||CATHOLIC EMPLOYERS URGED TO WATCH FOR SEXUAL ABUSE||
It's important for the Church to maintain its heightened awareness of the issue of sexual abuse, according to Mr John Davoren of the Church's Professional Standards Resource Group. He spoke to a recent Catholic employers' seminar entitled Care for Kids about the the policy document Towards Healing, as a pioneering effort that has successfully brought together all Church leaders to tackle the problem. Towards Healing was released in December 1996.
The focus of the seminar was new state child protection legislation that has profound implications for the Catholic Church, given its large involvement in working with children in fields such as education and health care.
