When the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops published their Promise to Protect, Pledge to Heal: Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People, each diocese and eparchy became responsible for a series of actions designed to protect God’s children. These actions include background checks of all adults in ministry with minors; establishing safe environment training programs for adults, children and youth; pastoral care for those hurt by the Church, and strict accountability for all of its activities in these endeavors. The Diocese of Superior has designed actions at the parish level to protect our most precious asset - our children. It is with a strong parish diocesan partnership that we will clear a safe path for our children to follow to our Lord Jesus Christ as he tells us to “Let the children come to me.” MATTHEW 19:14
**Safe Environment Training: Required for all volunteers & employees that work with youth.**
Where: Kress Hall
When: 6:00pm-7:00pm February 20th, April. 3rd
