It’s hoped the plan will cut the number of sexual abuse allegations. The classes would evaluate how prospective priests and church staff deal with their own sexuality.

A group of experts were brought together by the Swiss Bishop’s Conference. They are making the recommendation which will be discussed at a meeting today.

The bishops will also consider stricter reporting rules when they suspect an attack has happened – making a police report compulsory.
