Safe Environment

In the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, students in Pre-K through 12th Grade participate in two Safe Environment Lessons during the academic year.  Typically these lessons are taught in November & April by our teachers.

The Safe Environment Program makes it mandatory for any adult who has contact with the youth of our parish to have a criminal background check, child abuse clearance and attend the safe environment training class, “Protecting God’s Children.”  This applies to ALL employees, volunteers as well as every member of any organization which uses parish facilities and/or carries the parish name.  These regulations are in place for the safety of our children.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or member of an organization that requires compliance with our Safe Environment, please use the following links:
