Formation in Christian Chastity

Children are the most precious resource of the family and the Church. The greatest care must always be taken when the safety of children is involved. The Diocese of Arlington is committed to providing a safe environment to all children entrusted to our care and assisting each child to grow in grace and wisdom.


Depending on the age of the child and with parental permission and involvement the Diocese of Arlington offers several training programs designed for youth to allow them to be a last line of defense and to ensure every child has the tools necessary to combat abuse.


For children in diocesan schools or in religious education programs at parishes in grades 1-8, the training program used is Formation in Christian Chastity.
