In its ongoing commitment to protect children, the Diocese of Owensboro plans to acknowledge Child Abuse Prevention Month in April by hosting an annual prayer service at alternate locations in the diocese.  

This year’s event will be held at St. Stephen Cathedral in Owensboro on Monday, April 11th, 2011, at 7:00 p.m.  The public is invited to join with Bishop William Medley in prayer for those harmed by physical, emotional, or sexual abuse that they may find healing and that faith communities everywhere continue their efforts to protect the children under their care.
