Safe Environment Policy , What is it really? Which Priests are Violating It?

These are important documents to read, and I suggest everyone read them.

We will go over these documents with an upcoming post of a Sermon Fr.Geddes FSSP gave to his parish at Holy Family in Vancouver BC. A sermon he gave from the pulpit verbally attacking a parishioner. The audio of that sermon will be posted with quotes.

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Vancouver has just recently released a Report on Clergy Sexual Abuse"   https://rcav.org/wp-content/uploads/Report-on-Clergy-Sexual-Abuse-Vancouver.pdf

As well as "Policy on Sexual Misconduct by Clergy"

Procedures for reporting serious misconduct by Clergy.


Policy on Pastoral Conduct for Priests & Deacons:


"Clergy are to provide a work and ministerial environment that is free from physical, sexual, psychological, written or verbal intimidation, bullying or harassment, and are to ensure that the workplace meets or exceeds Archdiocesan Policy for the Prevention of Workplace Bullying & Harassment and legislated standards"

  1. "Harassment encompasses a broad range of physical, written or verbal behaviour, including, but not limited to, the following:
    1. Physical or mental abuse;
    2. Belittlement or criticism of personal attributes;
    3. Derogatory racial or ethnic comments, “jokes” or insults;" 
 "Priests, transitional deacons and permanent deacons in our parishes must uphold Christian values and conduct as they minister to, or work with, the people of God. Imitating Christ, the servant-leader, all who serve in these ministries must employ practices that meet the needs of God’s people and promote the highest respect for the dignity of individuals, especially the most vulnerable members of the community."
