Letter from the Cardinal: Safeguarding in the Church today

In the past couple of decades we have been saddened, hurt and betrayed by the sexual abuses that have been committed from within the Church.  History has brought us to a period of deep reflection and the Church has made significant strides in the process of Safeguarding minors and the less vulnerable who approach her as Mother.  In the past two days the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse has turned its attention to the present situation in the Catholic Church in England and Wales.

In a letter dated 22nd October 2019 Cardinal Vincent Nichols reflects up the journey we have made and the road that lay ahead.
