Education and Prevention

In our Take Action section, you were challenged to use this website to bring the issue of abuse into the light. Often times, you may hear people say that ‘Abuse is unknown in the Orthodox Church!’ or ‘We may have problems, but we never move abusers around the way that the Catholics do.’ This section provides the materials that can be used to teach the Orthodox both that abuse occurs, and that we have no right to point any fingers at our Roman brethren. In addition, we provide references to other groups that are working to help restore accountability in the Church. Finally, we provide information about what the different jurisdictions are doing to alleviate abuse and minister to victims, and who to contact if you want to see more done.
