All clergy, staff members and volunteers are Safe Church certified through the Diocese of Long Island


In 1991 the Episcopal Church General Convention passed a resolution in which it declared that sexual abuse, exploitation, coercion and harassment of adults and minors by clergy and church employees are abuses of trust, a violation of the Baptismal Covenant, contrary to Christian character and are therefore wrong. The Church must be a safe place for all people, a place of respect, trust and caring.

Grace Episcopal Church Massapequa along with the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island is committed to upholding these values and maintaining an environment free of abuse of children and youth and of sexual exploitation and harassment of adults in its churches, schools and institutions. It is a commitment the Diocese requires all ministers of the Church, lay and ordained, to make and uphold.  

All clergy, staff members and volunteers are Safe Church certified through the Diocese of Long Island.
