St. Jude Catholic Parish - South Bend, Indiana

Safe EnvironmentSt. Jude Church and School take seriously the Bishops' Charter for the Protection of Young People. This includes ensuring that the adults and volunteers who work with children in our school and parish have received the full background screening and education mandated by our diocese, educating our students to know what abuse is and how to report it, and asking every adult to be accountable for the reporting of abuse.

If you are aware that any child or vulnerable person has experienced abuse, you are obligated to contact civil authorities and notify the pastor (291-0570), principal (291-3820), or the office of the Vicar General (260-244-2611). Furthermore, anyone is encouraged to report situations that appear unsafe or raise potential concern for the well-being of our children.
