All Volunteers working with children in ministry must complete Safe Environment Training. You will be contacted in regard to necessary paperwork should you choose to assist us. However, in the meantime, please feel free to follow these instructions and complete the ONLINE Training portion entitled "Not On My Watch." This online option takes approximately 55 minutes to complete and is interactive. It is also a required component if you volunteer in a position working directly with children on a regular basis, such as a Catechist or Classroom Aide for example.
Simply follow these instructions to complete the online Shield the Vulnerable training:
- Go to: www.shieldthevulnerable.org
- Click on “First Time Signup”
- On the “Pick Type” dropdown list, choose Catholic Dioceses

Note: Additional trainings may be listed. These are optional and are marked as such.
Thank you for taking time to think and pray about this. God bless you!
Jesus said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not prevent them for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” (Mark 10).
The Catechism of the Catholic Church affirms that “Parents have the first responsibility for the education of their children in the faith, prayer, and all the virtues. They have the duty to provide, as far as possible, for the physical and spiritual needs of their children.”
