(March 01, 2022) The Rogationist Seminary College Cebu (RSC-C) conducted a forum on Rogationist Child Protection Policy crafted by the St. Matthew Province (SMP) of the Rogationists of the Heart of Jesus. Rev. Fr. Ronaldo Paulino, RCJ, the Superior of Fr. Hannibal Formation Center- Manila gave the input. Present in this event were the formators of the St. Hannibal Formation Center, faculty, and staff of the RSC- C, and seminarians from different congregations.
Fr. Ronaldo first gave the theological perspective of the Church on the problem of Child Abuse. In the second part, he elaborated on the practical guidelines and policies which are patterned from the common guidelines and policies crafted by the universal Church and also of the civil law. He also highlighted that the Child Protection Policy is not only intended for the well-being of children but also for the protection of the clergy. The talk was very informative and insightful; everyone was able to understand the nature and the specifics of the Rogationist’s Child Protection Policy.
