Tucson diocese passes audit on sex-abuse prevention policies and practices

.- A recent audit of the Diocese of Tucson found that its sex-abuse prevention policies and practices are in compliance with the norms established by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Bishop Gerald Kicanas made the announcement in a memo to parishioners last month.

The audit examined programs for victim outreach, the process for reporting allegations of abuse and the creation of safe environments for children.

In the face of 22 sex-abuse lawsuits, the diocese filed for federal Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in September.
