Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
This letter is to inform you that I have reviewed our training materials with Alicia Menard, our Safe Environment Coordinator for the Fairbanks Diocese, and have approved the materials that constitute the Safe Environment lending library.
These safe environment programs have been approved for use with all diocesan employees, clergy and volunteers.
I am satisfied that the content of these programs are consistent with the faith and teachings of the Catholic Church.
Sincerely in Christ,
†Most Reverend Chad W. Zielinski
Catholic Bishop of Northern Alaska
Diocese of Fairbanks
