SAFE ENVIRONMENT TRAINING SESSIONS &
CURRENT HEALTH CRISIS
At this time, due to the serious health crisis caused by the coronavirus, the diocesan Office of Safe Environment is canceling all Safe Environment training sessions scheduled through June 15, 2020. Individuals who need to attend either the initial or recertification Safe Environment training, except for volunteers whose credentials are suspended, will be given additional time to complete this requirement. Upon the resolution of the health crisis, the Office of Safe Environment will post the dates of the grace period.
