NH diocese starts online child safety training
MANCHESTER, N.H.—The Roman Catholic church in New Hampshire has started an online child safety program to help train employees and volunteers in the diocese.
The "Not on My Watch" program helps trainees learn how to recognize and report suspected child abuse. All new clergy, employees and volunteers in the Manchester diocese who regularly work with minors, as well as those who haven't had training in three years, will be required to complete it.
The program replaces a 10-year-old training program on child abuse awareness called "Protecting God's Children."
