Education and Training Video

This video features a presentation on the “Prevention of Sexual Misconduct and Abuse in our Parishes.” As part of the Diocese of New York and New Jersey’s continuing dedication to addressing this matter concern, clergy and parish council members were invited to participate in three regional (by deanery) conferences during which Michael Herzak, a subject matter expert, presented valuable information and recommendations. The training was mandated by the Diocesan Assembly of 2012.
