“The Bishops who participated in the Meeting on the “Protection of Minors in the Church” at the end of February have “taken some initiatives”, says Fr Hans Zollner, SJ, President of the Centre for Child Protection in an interview with Vatican News’ Gudrun Sailer.

Some Bishops, he says, have revised their guidelines to find and implement ways of “cooperating with Civil Authorities”.

Fr Zollner explains that Presidents of Catholic Bishops’ Conferences are seeking the help of the Centre for Child Protection in the formation of Church personnel on the ground, after many of them were reduced to tears in hearing testimonies of survivors of child sexual abuse.”
