The IMBISA Secretariat will be hosting a workshop on the Safeguarding of Minors with Women Religious from its nine member countries at the Padre Pio Spirituality Centre in Pretoria, South Africa on the 16th-19th May 2022. The workshop’s main focus is on signs and indicators in abused people, preventing abuse and spiritual trauma and providing pastoral care to victims and survivors of abuse. The workshop will be facilitated by Sr. Theresa Nyadombo HLMC from Zimbabwe and Fr. Adriano Jose Ukwatchali from Angola.
Every human being has value and dignity, which we as Catholics recognize as stemming directly from God’s creation of male and female in his own image and likeness. As a result, we believe that all people deserve to be valued, supported, and protected from harm. This is demonstrated in the Catholic Church by providing carefully planned activities for clergy, religious and the laity so that they may promote the integrity of every human being.
