We, the Church, have a responsibility to protect the most vulnerable among us from harm. Churches, schools, and youth organizations must ensure that children and vulnerable persons who worship, study, or participate in activities sponsored by a parish can do so in the safest and most secure setting possible.
The Diocese of San Jose’s Office for the Protection of Children & Vulnerable Adults (OPCVA) is committed to fostering a safe environment for our Catholic community. Our goal is to provide safeguards that not only protect the vulnerable, but also to serve as stewards for ministers and other volunteers by giving them clear standards to govern their activities in the name of the Church.
