Safe Environment

The mission of the “Safe Environment Program” is to insure the safety of children and young people who have been entrusted to our care.

We will:

  • Thoroughly screen and supervise all Church ministers, employees and volunteers who work with children and young people as part of their ministry.
  • Provide appropriate training in recognizing and reporting child abuse.
  • Expect all Church ministers, employees and volunteers who work with our young people to maintain a Christ-centered and professional code of conduct.

Provide the opportunity for every minor in our parish to participate annually in a safety training covering the topics of sexual abuse prevention and the need to tell if abuse is occurring.
