“As part of the Diocese of Winona-Rochester’s on-going commitment to implement the United States Bishops’ Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People, I hereby formally promulgate the Circle of Grace Program as our Safe Environment Program to educate children in our schools and Faith Formation Programs.” Most Rev. John M. Quinn, Bishop of the Diocese of Winona-Rochester

Circle of Grace is a safe environment program developed by the Archdiocese of Omaha in response to Article 12 of the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People. It serves the dual purpose of educating and forming youth about the value of positive relationships with God and others.

Through the Circle of Grace program, adults assist children and youth to recognize that each of us lives within a Circle of Grace that holds our very essence in body, mind, heart, soul, and sexuality. Through the Circle of Grace program, children and youth are taught to identify and maintain appropriate physical, emotional, spiritual and sexual boundaries; recognize when boundary violations are about to occur; and demonstrate how to take action when boundaries are threatened or violated.

Circle of Grace is clinically sound and grounded in the Catholic tradition. Its strong parent component means parents can actively participate in their children’s education and formation.

(Please list all of your children who are enrolled in programs at St. John’s and have completed Circle of Grace.)
