Safeguarding

Safeguarding All of God’s Family

St. Francis de Sales staff and parishioners are committed to maintaining a safe environment for our children and youth. All volunteers (Catechists, athletic team coaches, Girl Scout leaders, chaperones for overnight activities, and other Church volunteers who have regular contact with children or youth) need to complete the following:

  • Read and sign the Code of Ethical Standards and the Mandatory Reporting Statement. A copy of the signed Code will be kept on file at parish or school.
  • Have a criminal background check completed by the parish office.
    (These documents are kept on file at our parish or school.)
  • All volunteers who have regular contact with children are required to attend a Safe Environment “Protecting God’s Children” awareness session. They will need to pre-register for the session on the Safeguarding All of God’s Family Events page.
