Protection of minors and vulnerable adults

The Focolare Movement will give absolute priority to the safety and safeguarding of all, and to the dignity and respect of everyone.

Recognizing the invaluable charism of unity bestowed upon the Church by the Holy Spirit, the Focolare Movement upholds the inherent dignity of every individual and their potential to contribute to the realization of universal brotherhood. It affirms the fundamental principle that no one should face obstacles or be denied personal freedom in answering their call as baptized individuals and nurturing a close relationship with God. Its task is to ensure that this risk does not occur within its communities and programmes.
