The Safe Environment Session is a three-hour facilitated awareness session about abuse and creating a safe environment. Participants must pre-register online as explained above, so that their session attendance can be verified and they will receive credit for fulfilling this mandatory requirement. Participants may attend any session that is offered, whether at our parish or elsewhere.
Additional details regarding session attendance are as follows:
- The archdiocese requires that volunteers attend a session only once.
- Volunteers who are 18 and under, including those who are still in high school, are not required to complete these requirements.
- A session must be attended even if a person’s occupation already requires this education (police officers, lawyers, doctors, and teachers, for example).
