Safe Environment Program

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)



Online Adult Training Sessions


As of June 15, 2018, Safe Environment Training will transition from an online program to in-person training. Please contact Chris Stiles at for more information. 





  • Saturday, August 18, 10:00-11:30 a.m.

  • Thursday, August 30, 7:00-8:30 p.m.

All classes will be held in the St Aloysius Gonzaga room (formerly room 5).
