The abuse of children is a crime and grave sin against the dignity of the human person created in the image and likeness of God. Sacred Heart parish is committed to creating an environment of safety and health for children and young people. We are committed to preserving their dignity and innocence before God, and to protecting them from harm. The Safe Environment program of the Archdiocese of New York provides resources for education on this issue, as well as confidential means to raise concerns and to assist victims.
Everyone has the right to expect that the clergy, ministers, volunteers and employees of Sacred Heart parish live and work by the codes of conduct of the Safe Environment program of the Archdiocese of New York.
If you have any concerns regarding the safety of children at Sacred Heart, please contact Fr. Moe at 963-4205 .

St. Joseph, God entrusted His greatest treasures, Mary and Jesus, to your protection. We now place our programs under your patronage. We ask you to pray for us, that we may create a safe environment for the children who have been entrusted to us. Please obtain for us the grace to lead these children to lives of virtue and love, and to guide them to the vocations that God has intended for them. Help us to be good role models and protectors for them, as you were for your family. We ask this in the name of your beloved spouse Mary, and your son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
