In January of 2024, the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart USA Province were notified that they successfully completed the Praesidium Accreditation Process. Praesidium provides accreditation to assist in the prevention of organizational abuse.

The Missionaries of the Sacred Heart USA Province has implemented all the requirements of the Standard which is the highest level of the implementations. The Institute ensures the process in responding to an allegation is publicly available. It also ensures that the Major
Superior has education, training and/or experience in the impact of child sexual abuse and how to promote healing for survivors.

Another requirement for accreditation is a 6-step process of screenings that include meeting with specialists such as a licensed psychologist. Members are educated on the knowledge of skills necessary for preventing and responding to abuse. In all, there are 20 Standards and the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart have met all those requirements.

Much has been accomplished and the MSC will continue in their dedication and education in the prevention of organizational abuse.
