At St John XXIII parish, we share a common belief in the dignity and uniqueness of every human life. In particular, each child has the right to expect the highest level of care, love, encouragement and respect that we can give. It is our aim to provide an environment that supports and nurtures children so that they may develop and mature into socially and spiritually healthy individuals.
While we are committed to protecting our children and young people from any kind of abuse and to providing a safe environment for them, we accept that some element of risk is unavoidable. Safeguarding procedures (which are in place) are intended to minimize those risks for children and for those who work with them, and to clarify what steps to take in case a problem arises.

- The Diocese of Lausanne, Geneva and Fribourg has since 1st January 2019 established a Charter against sexual abuse (French) and thus, requires all people who are serving the diocese to present a criminal record extract and a special extract. More information about the extracts and how to obtain them are found here.
