Circles of Care
In order to strengthen our efforts to protect, the Diocese of Syracuse instituted the Circles of Care program. This curriculum was originally developed by the Diocese of Manchester and has been adapted by our Diocese to address age appropriate personal safety issues for children and youth in the context of Catholic moral teaching.
The foundation for Circles of Care is rooted in our faith as Catholic Christians: We are created in God’s image and likeness, we share a common dignity as human persons, we are called to relationship, to community, and to care for one another, especially those most in need.
The lessons in Circles of Care are intended to strengthen and complement the care that is already part of the catechetical ministry.
We continue to pray for all of our families and young people as we strive to create a safe environment for them while we help to nourish their faith and spirit while with us.
