As ministers and collaborators with our diocesan Bishop, we hold an abiding respect for each human being, and we endeavor to make our parishes, schools, pastoral centers, offices, and all of our ministries safe environments for everyone, especially our children and young people. As a Church family, we also reach out to those who have been victimized in any way by representatives of the Church and offer spiritual and pastoral assistance for their healing and restoration.
St. Elizabeth requires all adults (18 and over) who work with youth to attend Protecting God’s Children Training Session. Diocese of Beaumont Safe Environment offers training sessions throughout the year, dates and times are listed on their website. In addition to the PGC training, volunteers must fill out a background check form, including a copy of your drivers license and car insurance, also refer to the Ethical policy and sign the acknowledgement form.
This must be done every five years.
