Resources for Safe Environment Coordinators

This page contains resources for our diocesan Safe Environment Coordinators, including orientation webinars, a practice manual, newsletters, and other tips, to help them in their role. The pastor, principal, or director of each diocesan entity (parish, school, camp) appoints a Safe Environment Coordinator to assist in ensuring that the Policy for the Protection of Children is fully implemented. Duties of a Safe Environment Coordinator include:

Coordinating training and criminal records checks for employees and volunteers;

Distributing child safety materials and information about diocesan child safety policies;

Tracking completion of safe environment requirements for those who will work with minors;

Assisting in responding to inquiries and concerns;

Submitting compliance information to the Office for Ministerial Conduct.
