Safe Environment

We can all be part of the solution--- together we can provide a safe environment and foster a greater respect of the dignity of the human person. All priests, deacons, employees, and volunteers serving at the parish are required to take Safe Environment Training annually.

In the Diocese of Phoenix all volunteers must complete an in-person foundation course for Safe Environment and complete a background check. Following the foundation, volunteers are asked to complete renewal training annually. This training is offered through in-class sessions or through computer ‘online’ training.
