Loving God and Father,
You have given us every good gift and promised to be with us always. We ask for your blessing as we journey through this Year of Youth in the Diocese of Trenton. Surround us in your care and enfold us in your love. Guide our bishop. Inspire our priests, our deacons, our religious, and all of the faithful. Bless our families. Strengthen our parishes and schools. Make this be a time of grace for the young Church; a time of growth and renewal for all who take part in this Year of Youth. Send your Holy Spirit among us to awaken in our hearts the courage to live the joy of the Gospel in everything we do. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Our Promise to Protect
The Diocese of Trenton is committed to the initiatives outlined in the U.S. Bishop’s Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People in regard to the reporting and investigation of sexual abuse allegations involving minors. If you have been sexually abused as a minor by a member of the clergy or anyone representing the Catholic Church, or if you know of someone who was, you can report that abuse through the diocesan Abuse Hotline. To report the sexual abuse of minors call our hotline 1-888-296-2965 or email us at email@example.com.
