Protecting God's Children
The Archdiocese of St. Louis has developed a new system for safe environment compliance called Prevent and Protect STL.
Everyone ministering to minors and vulnerable adults (clergy, employees and volunteers) in the Archdiocese are required and asked to register in the new system before December 31, 2020. This includes those new to service and those who are currently in service. For those who have already attended a Protecting God’s Children workshop, your previous training date will transfer to this new system. In addition to attending a live Protecting God’s Children workshop, all clergy, volunteers, and employees will register for an updated background screening, view two new online training modules on abuse reporting and the Code of Ethical Conduct, and agree to the updated Code of Ethical Conduct. Please go to www.preventandprotectstl.org to register and contact your parish Child Safety Coordinator James Browne @ 528-8219 or email him at: [email protected] with any questions or for further assistance.
