Accreditation Status

 Our child protection efforts are audited by Praesidium, a leading independent audit service which assists us in developing our policies regarding safe environment, screening and selection, training of friars, monitoring and supervision, internal feedback systems, responding to allegations, and administrative practices.

  • The accreditation process includes onsite inspections, interviews of Provincial leadership and members, review of records for all our screening and child protection and training, and a review of each complaint received since the last accreditation.
  • In December 2018, the Province was reaccredited for five years after meeting all 25 standards of accreditation with no corrections or notations.
