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.
