CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION MONTH
Healing Garden located at Holy Family Parish (1080 West Roosevelt Road, Chicago)
The Office of Assistance Ministry and the Safe Environment Office along with the Healing Garden Committee hosted the Prevent Child Abuse Prayer Service at the Healing Garden.
One of the highlights of the service included planting the pinwheels for prevention.
This symbolic gesture is designed to show the public in a very dramatic way that child abuse and neglect happen in every community and encourages each of us to focus on prevention as a part of an overall plan to break the cycle of abuse.
