Cathy Shannon, who directs child protection for the Archdiocese of Portland, urged parish leaders at a conference last month to have staff and volunteers continue and finish the current round of child sex abuse prevention training.

National auditors are coming to western Oregon in September for a regular review of the archdiocese's efforts. The audit will include visits to randomly selected parishes and schools. Shannon urged the leaders to clear their volunteer lists of people who are no longer active.
