Safe Environment Training
Anyone in the diocese that works with youth in any way is required to complete Safe Environment Training. This includes most people who volunteers within our parish, including Eucharistic ministers, lectors, and anyone who helps in our Religious Education program and/or our Youth Ministry. If you are thinking of volunteering you might want to get this training in preparation. The training is free and can be completed online or in an on-site training session. For more information visit the Diocesan Safe Environment webpage. As part of the training everyone is asked to read the Code of Ministerial Conduct.
