Safe Environment

The Office of Safe Environment oversees compliance with the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People, by administering the Safe Environment awareness training (VIRTUS) and background screening (TruView) programs for all diocesan and parish staff as well as volunteers who work with children.  This office provides oversight and resources for age appropriate training for children in parish faith formation and youth ministry programs. We assist diocesan entities in fulfilling their responsibilities to create and maintain a safe environment for the children entrusted to the care of our parish faith formation, education, service and recreational programs.
