Safety Programs

All volunteers must be fingerprinted in order to be on campus with children. Please contact the school office to receive a form and find the various times and locations for fingerprinting. 

Virtus - Protecting God's Children Program
All volunteers are asked to attend a training session designed to help adults that interact with children to be aware of how to protect children. Our Protecting God's Children Program for adults is a three-hour live awareness session, instructing adults of the Church that to protect children you must have continuous awareness and vigilance. This awareness session makes trainees understand the signs of child sexual abuse, the methods and means by which offenders commit abuse, and five empowerment steps one can use to prevent child sexual abuse. This mandatory policy is part of the Safe Environment Training program managed by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Please see our school calendar or church bulletin for dates and times of available training sessions.
