The criminal background check is authorized as part of the online process described above in the “Meeting the Requirements” section.
In order to promote and ensure that St. Peter Catholic Church is operating in a safe and sound manner, consistent with its responsibilities and obligations to the faithful and to the community, we routinely conduct criminal background checks on all applicants for employment and those volunteers who work with minors. The background check is conducted by a consumer reporting agency in compliance with the federal law, and is called a consumer report or consumer credit report. The word consumer simply means “individual” (a report on an individual). The report will only include a check of criminal records of individuals. The background check will not include a credit check.
Please read the following disclosure notice as required by federal law prior to completing and signing the background authorization form.
