Safe Environment Requirements The Archdiocese of Philadelphia issued a mandate that every volunteer who comes in contact with the children of our Parish must go through a security clearance. There are three separate forms that need to be filled out – Pennsylvania Criminal Record Check, the Pennsylvania Child Abuse Clearance Form and the Child Abuse Waiver form.
If you have not already sent these forms in, the forms are available for downloading by clicking on the links above, or by contacting the rectory office. If you have already received your clearance as a coach, or in your workplace, please bring your original forms in for us to photocopy. In addition to the clearance forms, every volunteer is required to attend a Safe Environment Training Session.
All current volunteers must attend a Safe Environment Training Session and have their clearance forms submitted as soon as possible. The Pennsylvania Criminal Record Check and the Pennsylvania Child Abuse Clearance Form are valid for 5 years. The Safe Environment Training class certification does not expire.
