Safeguarding All of God's Family
The goal of the Safeguarding All of God's Family program is to protect our children and all in the church family from sexual abuse and related dangers. All adults who volunteer with children or youth are required to keep children safe by completing the Archdiocesan requirements: a background check, reading the Code of Ethical Standards and attending a Safe Environment session. Volunteers must complete the certification PRIOR to starting their volunteer service.
To begin the Safe Environment process for volunteers click the CMGconnect link below or go to the Archdiocese website and click the Safe Environment ribbon.
Children and youth are also required to have one session each year in the Circles of Grace program. The materials are age appropriate.
The Archdiocese offers a variety of resource materials for parents and other adults to inform them about this important topic. Go to the Archdiocesan website and click the Safeguarding section.
