The Society of Mary, now and always, is missioned to bring the Good News and signs of God’s Kingdom into a broken world. We are especially tasked to serve the young, the vulnerable and those neglected by society. In light of this calling, we are committed to promote a safeguarding culture in our houses, ministries; wherever we work and live.
Each unit of the Society has appropriate protocols to promote a safeguarding environment, methodology for responding to complaints of abuse, and a system of ongoing education in safeguarding for its membership. The units are expected to review and revise these protocols on a regular basis. And most importantly the protocols are to be adhered to faithfully and without exception.
Safeguarding issues in the Society are handled by the responsible authorities in the local Unit, namely the Province or District.
