Preventing Child Abuse Is Everyone's Responsibility
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

This weekend, we celebrate the hope of Easter, which reminds us to celebrate our lives as children of God - fully redeemed, fully loved, and fully alive human beings. The damage done by childhood sexual abuse violates the sense of safety, security, and wholeness in children and calls us to strengthen our efforts to reach out to victims and survivors of sexual abuse so that they may have lives of hope and wholeness. For more information on preventing sexual abuse and on victim assistance efforts, visit www.archlou.org/restoringtrust.

This summer Bellarmine University is offering a variety of Summer Camps for youth. Please click here to access a listing of the camps offered.
