Creating a safe environment for children and young people is a diocesan priority. We are dedicated to ensuring a culture of safe and respectful conduct in ALL ministries and enhancing and protecting the dignity and trust of all God’s people.
We hold all Church Clergy, Religious, and Lay Ministers to Christ-centered conduct.
Appropriate training is how everyone will best be able to recognize, respond, and report abuse, neglect, and /or sexual misconduct of all ages.
As a result of this priority, every employee and volunteer must:
- Complete a Volunteer Ministry Application
- Have a criminal background check
- Complete online Safe Environment Training (18+ Adults only) or Attend a live Safe Environment Training Session (13-17 Teens only)
