DIOCESAN SAFE ENVIRONMENT GUIDELINES

             This is a reminder that the Diocese of Pittsburgh requires all volunteer ministers who have any contact with children (including, but not limited to, Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors, and choir members) to fulfill Safe Environment requirements. This includes 1) an application on the online diocesan database; 2) a PA Dept. of Public Welfare Child Abuse Clearance certificate; 3) a signed copy of the Code of Pastoral Conduct; and 4) attendance at a Protecting God's Children workshop.  In the near future, volunteer ministers will receive information detailing their status with the guidelines.  For your convenience, we will hold Protecting God's Children workshops at the parish in the next month.  If you'd prefer another option, St. Edward's in Blawnox is hosting a PGC session on Saturday, May 22 at 9am.  Please call 412-828-4066 to register.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact Mary Swindal, parish Safe Environment Coordinator, at 412-781-0186 or mswindal@saintscholastica.com
