The Secretariat of Child and Youth Protection is excited to announce the Archdiocese of New Orleans as the host of the 13th annual Child and Youth Protection Catholic Leadership Conference (CYPCLC). The CYPCLC will be held from June 3-6, 2018 in downtown New Orleans.

The CYPCLC brings together leaders from dioceses/eparchies, both clergy and lay, to network and hear from experts on issues of victim assistance, pastoral care, and the creation of safe environments in the Church. Diocesan clergy and staff from all dioceses are encouraged to attend. The diocesan CYPCLC planning committee has put together a fact sheet with more information on the conference. 

For more information visit the conference website and contact Sr. Mary Ellen Wheelahan, Safe Environment Coordinator, Archdiocese of New Orleans at (504) 861- 6278 or
