April Child Abuse Prevention Month is celebrated annually to increase awareness throughout the Archdiocese. Here at St. Bernard we will be celebrate our Child abuse prevention month on April 14 through April 20. We encourage everyone to wear blue and offer special prayers for keeping our children safe.

Did You Know?

During National Child Abuse Prevention Month, and on behalf of Archbishop José H. Gomez, we affirm our continued commitment to report allegations of sexual misconduct to law enforcement, support victim-survivors in their healing journey, and protect children and the vulnerable. The Archdiocese created a website, that serves as a comprehensive tool containing resources, programs and services for protecting children and reporting abuse. If you, or someone you know, is a victim of sexual misconduct by someone affiliated with our Church, please contact law enforcement and the Archdiocese’s Victims Assistance Coordinator at (213) 737-7650 or visit for help and support.
