Matter before the Court

Statement from the Australian Jesuit Province.

Charges against two Jesuits are listed for hearing in a Sydney Court today in relation to allegations of abuse against students at Saint Ignatius College, Riverview when they worked there in the 1970s. While this is before the Courts we are unable to comment on this matter further but the Province will fully cooperate with the police. The Australian Jesuits strongly condemn any abuse of children or young people. We work in partnership with the Australian Childhood Foundation in implementing best practice policies and standards to protect the children and vulnerable adults in our care.
