Praesidium Accreditation™

“The Province recently went through the process of re-accreditation for Safe Environment through Praesidium, a leading abuse risk management group and the accrediting body for the Men’s Religious Orders and congregations.The process requires that an independent team of specialists from Praesidium independently verify that the 2016 Edition of the Praesidium Standards for Accreditation have been met. Praesidium specialists have thoroughly reviewed our policies, conducted site visits, interviewed members of the Province, including those in formation, our vocation and formation directors, members of the Provincial Council and members of our Review Board. We are pleased to inform you that the accreditation process has now concluded successfully and that the Order of the Discalced Carmelites, Province of St. Therese has once again been certified as Praesidium Accredited™. Our current accreditation will remain in effect for five years, (December 2017 – December 2022) and during this time we will continue to uphold the standards of Accreditation.”
