Volunteer Certification & Other Information

Volunteer Certification Information

All of us are aware of how the recent disclosures of child sexual abuse that now hang like a dark shadow over the Catholic Church. As part of the efforts to make sure that this tragic chapter is never repeated, the bishops now require anyone who works with children to undergo a Criminal Background Check, read the Archdiocesan Ethical Code of Conduct and attend a Safe Environment Education workshop (none of these costs you any money). Please see our Parent Volunteer page for information on obtaining certification.

Three Steps to Complete Your Safe Environment Certification

  • Training: From time to time we schedule a Safe Environment Education training to take place here at St. Robert. The Safe Environment workshops take up to 3 hours to complete. To attend a workshop (even here at St. Robert) you must register online.
  • Archdiocesan Code of Ethical Standards: After reading the code online this form is now “signed” online.
  • Criminal Background Check: This process is now done completely online. Do not be alarmed if the link on the Archdiocese website takes you to a different website. Please be assured that access to your information is restricted.
