Safe Environment

Did You Know?

The Diocese of Raleigh requires that all people who work in leadership with children and youth in our parishes and schools attend a training session in how to recognize and report child abuse. 

The training details five steps to prevent child sexual abuse:

  1. Knowing the warning signs of abuse.
  2. Reporting suspected abuse to appropriate authorities.
  3. Controlling access to children by carefully selecting the adults who work with children and youth.
  4. Monitoring all programs for the safety of children and youth.
  5. Awareness of and sensitive to the lives of the children.

Safe environment training sessions are held approximately every other month at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton.  For convenience, training sessions can also be attended at other parishes.

Our next Safe Environment Session is scheduled for Thursday,December 13th, beginning at 6:00pm in the parish hall. Please call the parish office if you plan to attend so we can have appropriate supplies on hand. Per Diocese, we must have a minimum of 10 participants to hold session-so please make certain you call and sign up.
