Protecting God's children and vulnerable adults is the responsibility of the whole community.
All parish volunteers engaged in ministries, events, or activities that involve vulnerable adults and or youth ages 18 and younger are mandated to have Protecting God's Children training before participating in the ministry, event, or activity.
These volunteers must also have on file with the parish a complete Worker Registration form and a signed Code of Ethical Conduct.
