Circles of Care

In the Fall 2006, the Diocese began to include a personal safety component in the curriculum of its Catholic schools and religious education programs called Circles of Care. The curriculum addresses age appropriate personal safety issues for children and youth and is introduced in the context of Catholic moral teaching.
