Letter from Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio:                        

In 2002, the Catholic Bishops of the United States met in Dallas, and approved the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People and pledged to address the issue of sexual abuse by clergy, lay employees and volunteers in the Catholic Church. The Charter includes guidelines for reconciliation, healing, accountability, and prevention of future acts of abuse. Since 2002, the Bishops have revised the Charter twice and will continue to make changes as necessary.

In order to implement the goals expressed in the Charter, the Safe Environment Program was opened in 2004. This program includes training to assist priests, deacons, pastoral ministers, employees and volunteers to be aware of any signs of sexual abuse with the children with whom they might come into contact, conducting background searches to reveal any past criminal activity that might endanger children entrusted to our care, and administering codes of pastoral conduct which serve as guidelines for pastoral activity. Protecting God’s Children is a tremendous responsibility that the Church has and must fulfill.

Of equal importance was the need to reach out to victims and their families who have been impacted by sexual abuse by clergy. For many years, the Diocese of Brooklyn has been offering assistance to those who have presented themselves to the Diocese as victims of sexual abuse by clergy through the Office of Victim Assistance. We are committed to helping anyone who was hurt as a minor by sexual abuse to seek help and to begin the healing process. Healing is a journey which can be taken in different steps. Circumstances for each victim are varied, but the commonality is that there is a need to feel that someone understands their pain, acknowledges the wrongdoing and offers an apology in the name of the Church.

We hope that through the links on this page, you will find valuable and useful information on the resources provided within the Diocese in Brooklyn and Queens to address the issue of sexual abuse by clergy, lay employees, and volunteers in the Catholic Church.

As Bishop of the Diocese of Brooklyn, my prayers continue for all the victims of sexual abuse by clergy or other Church personnel within our Diocese and throughout the Church and all those affected by its occurrence. May the Lord bring healing and peace.

Most Reverend Nicholas DiMarzio, Ph.D., D.D.
Bishop of Brooklyn

We believe that everything originates at the hands of a loving God. As a Catholic school and a vital part of the parish community, St. Nicholas of Tolentine Catholic Academy shares this belief with clergy, parents, administration, faculty and staff through our teaching of the doctrines of the Catholic Church.

We exist for our children and without them we have no purpose. We take pride in our culturally and religiously diverse student body that recognizes, promotes and nourishes the God-given talents of each individual. Focusing on the individual needs of each student, we seek to create a peaceful and mutually respectful learning environment where each child will be motivated and encouraged to develop as a whole person – spiritually, academically, socially, emotionally and physically. Our hope is that with this development there will grow an awareness of each student’s responsibility to self, community, church and the world. This, coupled with basic learning experiences, will promote academic excellence.

The pastor, the Board of Directors and the principal are responsible for the establishment of local school policy. The curriculum is based on the Common Core Learning Standards and the guidelines provided by the Diocese of Brooklyn Office of the Superintendent ~ Catholic School Support Services. We recognize parents as the primary educators of their children and strive to work with them as partners. We keep our families well informed of the progress of their children based on teacher evaluation and standardized testing.

While maintaining our identity as a Catholic school, we welcome families of other denominations for whom faith is essential.
