The Protecting God’s Children Workshop provides sexual abuse awareness training. This workshop is helpful whether you are a teacher, parent, grandparent, neighbor, coach, scout leader or friend of a child. Everyone should be aware of the warning signs of child abuse. Archdiocesan guidelines require that all volunteers over the age of 18 complete the workshop. Workshops are offered throughout the diocese.

If you have questions, please contact the Parish Office at 889-2100.
