Confreres from South organize sexual harassment seminar

Confreres together with their staff and parish leaders attended a sexual harassment seminar on April 2, 2016at St. Vincent Parish Pastoral Center. The seminar was sponsored by confreres in the south to deepen their awareness and knowledge on recent laws and issues on sexual harassment issues in Taiwan. They invited a lawyer with vast knowledge on the issue to be the speaker. The seminar gave light to some delicate issues on sexual harassment that confreres may not know about especially when dealing with employees and parishioners.
