The actual USCCB memo

The actual USCCB memo

I got hold of a copy of the memo from Teresa Kettelcamp, the director of the USCCB Office for Child and Youth Protection, to all bishops. Here it is in full (recall that this was four typed pages). Note the tone this bureaucrat takes toward the successors of the apostles that she putatively works for.

Office of Child and Youth Protection
3211 Fourth Street NE
Washington, DC 20017-1194

September 9, 2005

To:  All Bishops
From:  Teresa M. Kettelkamp
        Executive Director
Subject:  Office of Child and Youth Protection and Audit Update

As many of you already know, the audits ascertaining compliance with the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People are underway.  As of the end of August, approximately 24 audits will have been completed:  3 full audits, 5 focused audits and 16 self audits.

There are two audit-related issues that have come to the attention of the Office of Child and Youth Protection which I though would interest all the Bishops; and thus, I would like to share with you.  The first issue involves the safe environment training of children and the opting-out of this training. The second issue concerns Required Actions.
