Protecting God's Children
Anyone who works with or volunteers with children must be compliant with the Safe Environment Program per the USCCB (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops).
Compliance in the Archdiocese of St. Louis includes taking a Protecting God’s Children workshop, a signed Code of Ethical Conduct, and a current background check which is run every year in our Archdiocese.
Victims of sexual abuse, in addition to contacting civil authorities, are asked to come forward to receive pastoral assistance. Reports of abuse may be made to any Pastor or to:
Missouri Department of Social Services, Children’s Division
Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline:
Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services
Adult Abuse and Neglect Hotline:
