In order to comply with the requirements set by the Archdiocese of Atlanta, volunteers must complete several steps before helping in their selected ministry.
The goal is to ensure a safe environment for children and vulnerable individuals. To meet that goal, the Archdiocese has developed a Safe Environment program. Click HERE to read more about the Archdiocese’s mission.
The Archdiocese has put all of the paperwork and the necessary steps together on their Volunteers webpage HERE.
You may return your completed paperwork to the appropriate Staff Member or bring it directly to the Parish Office.
At the heart of the Safe Environment program is the VIRTUS: Protecting God’s Children training class. This is a three-hour class offered at various locations throughout the archdiocese on various weeknights and Saturdays. Detailed information about the class can be found HERE.
