The Diocese of Portland is committed to protecting all children and youth by offering several abuse prevention educational sessions.
The Diocesan Policy and Procedure for the Protection of minors requires all clergy, employees, volunteers that directly serve minors, and minors to attend training on an annual basis. All other volunteers must complete a training on line each year. All minors in Catholic schools and in parish, religious education or youth ministry activities are required to participate in these programs.
