Parish/ Diocesan Policy
Our diocese requires that we register all parish volunteers so that we can serve those in our care responsibly and effectively. Volunteers should be aware of the Diocese Child Protection Policy. You can begin to volunteer once you have submitted the three signed, dated forms immediately below together with your proof of Virtus attendance to the Parish.

- These forms are not used to register you as a member of the parish.
- Only persons 18 years of age or over should fill out these forms.
All material marked “confidential” will be used only to determine a potential volunteer's suitability for ministry. It will not be associated with any other parish records, and will not be used by the parish for any other purpose, nor shared with anyone without the person's written consent. Only the pastor and professional staff (priests, deacons, directors and associate directors of parish departments) have access to confidential material, and only to the degree that it is needed to establish suitability for ministry.
