Child Protection

The protection of children and other vulnerable people is one of the major priorities of the Diocese of Mendi.  Two secretariats share responsibility for implementing this priority: Caritas and Family Life.  They do so, in collaboration with the National Catholic Office of Child Protection.  Child Protection volunteers are trained in each parish, who give awareness to all parishioners of the necessity of protecting our children.  Diocesan efforts at the protection of children support the Lukautim Pikinini Act and follow the protocols established by the Catholic Bishops' Conference.

In a related way, the Diocese of Mendi fully embraces the Right Relations protocols established by the Catholic Bishops Conference.  Diocesan personnel are trained in these protocols.  The following are the Right Relations contact persons who have been named for the Diocese of Mendi:

Western Deanery

Father Paul Patlo, OFM Cap.
Sister Mary Norbert, MSC

Eastern & Central Deaneries

Fr Rober Gigmai
Sister Monica Pia, FSDP

Anyone with knowledge of possible violations of the Right Relations protocols should immediately contact the above mentioned people.  If a crime is suspected, then the civil authorities should be contacted.
