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 even year in our Archdiocese.
