Safe Environment

Saint Benedict provides its children with a safe environment. Catechists and all volunteers with access to children have undergone the Virtus Training Session, are background screened and sign a Code of Conduct and understand the Policy of the Diocese concerning abuse.

All volunteers with access to minor children (those under the age of 18) must meet these requirements of the Diocese in order to volunteer.  

All policies are available in the parish office or at the websites listed below. Any questions or concerns may be addressed to the persons listed below.
