Circles of Care

Safe Environment Training for Children and Youth in Parish Catechetical Programs (Circles of Care Curriculum)

Circles of Care is new educational program tailored to our parish catechetical programs. This curriculum originally developed by the Diocese of Manchester has been adapted by the Diocese of Syracuse to address age-appropriate personal safety issues for children and youth in the context of Catholic moral teaching.

The training replaces the awareness training that the diocese had been using since 2004.  Click here to review.

Parental Opt Out Form - allows parents to decline permission for their child(ren) to participate in the safe environment classroom training. The signed form must be returned to the parish catechetical leader.
