Safe Environment Compliance
Safe Environment Compliance (Prevent and Protect) is required of any individual who has contact with minors, with vulnerable adults, or who makes home visits while working with our parish. Individuals are required to attend a Protecting God's Children workshop, view two online training modules regarding abuse reporting, complete a national criminal record check, and sign the Archdiocese's Code of Ethical Conduct.
*Please note: All volunteers must register with Prevent and Protect, which is the updated version of the Protecting God's Children program in the Archdiocese. If you have attended a Protecting God's Children workshop in the past, you will not need to re-take the workshop, and will simply need to view the training modules and complete the registration process online.
