Members of the Society of Mary Sexual Abuse Protocol Committee meet several times a year.
The Committee comprises men and women from a range of backgrounds, Catholic and non-Catholic.
Each has expertise in a particular professional area.
The purpose of the committee is to ensure that Marist priests and brothers respond appropriately to complaints of abuse and that the Society follows the national protocol guide “A Path to Healing – Te Houhanga Rongo”.
The Society of Mary’s “delegate” is Mrs Judy McCormack.
Abuse complaints can be referred to Mrs McCormack on 021 909 749.
