Safe Environment (PGC)

The US Catholic Conference of Bishops and our Archdiocese require that, before an individual can work/volunteer with our children/youth OR vulnerable adults, the individual must be fully compliant with the Safe Environment Program—Protecting God’s Children®. Full compliance means completion of the instructions at the "Prevent and Protect" link below, prior to any involvement with our children/youth or vulnerable adults.

If you are under 18 years old and planning to be involved with younger children/minors, you and your parents will need to complete and sign the Code of Ethics Form for Minors.
