Protecting God’s Children
Rosati-Kain High School is deeply grateful to those who, through their employment, or their volunteer efforts, help form our children academically, spiritually, socially and athletically. Rosati-Kain High School follows the Archdiocese of St. Louis Safe Environment Program (Protecting God’s Children).
The program is designed to help protect everyone in our school as they participate in activities within our community. This process also provides a layer of protection against the possibility of false accusations for those adults who are involved in our many ministries. If you have any questions, please contact Anna Scott Nguyen at [email protected].
Victims of sexual abuse, in addition to contacting civil authorities, are asked to come forward in order to receive pastoral assistance. Reports of abuse may be made to any Pastor or to:
Sandra Price, Executive
Director Office of Child & Youth Protection
Missouri Department of Social Services,
Children’s Division Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline:

For additional information related to reporting incidents of suspected abuse, please refer to the Archdiocese’s Policy, Procedures, and Guidelines on Child Abuse and Neglect Reports or contact:

As of May 22, 2003, the Archdiocese of St. Louis adopted a sexual misconduct policy that is in conformity with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ “Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People” and “Essential Norms for Diocesan/Parochial Policies Dealing with Allegations of Sexual Abuse of Minors by Priests or Deacons,” as well as with Vatican documents and the Code of Canon Law.
