Handbooks & Policies
As of July 1, 2012 the State of Georgia redefined “child service organization personnel” in the Mandatory Reporting of Child Abuse Law to include additional categories of people who are under the “mandatory reporter” list. Please review the updated Archdiocese Code_of_Conduct and Sexual_Abuse_Policy and make note of the changes.
If a child discloses any form of abuse to you, please read the Procedures_for_Processing_Allegations set forth by the Archdiocese of Atlanta.
