April 7, 2019, is Safe Haven Sunday, the first Sunday of National Child Abuse Prevention Month.
Safe Haven Sunday is day of awareness; to give us an opportunity to address the harmfulness of pornography in marriages, families, and our culture as a whole, while providing helpful resources to both individuals and families. It is an opportunity for us to take a proactive approach in equipping parents (for children as young as SIX years old) so they may better protect and safeguard their homes.
Families are encouraged to participate in a free seven-day email challenge by texting the word SECURE to phone number 66866.
This challenge will give detailed means for creating a safe media environment in your home. It includes information on the latest youth apps and Google Safe Search, how to apply restriction mode for popular technologies, provide guidance on having conversations about pornography and tips for creating “safe haven homes.”
“Together we can work to equip parents and families with formation and resources to assist their ongoing and vital work to make their homes safe havens,” said Archbishop Gregory.
