Safe Environment (Protecting God's Children)

Safe Environment Compliance and Workshop

"It is the policy of the Archdiocese of St. Louis that all clergy, employees and volunteers whose service in the Church brings them into contact with children must have a regular background check conducted through the Missouri Family Care Safety Registry and the Federal Bureau of Investigation for those who have lived outside the state of Missouri. They must also attend a Protecting God’s Children Workshop and sign this Code of Ethical Conduct."  Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson
