Protecting God’s Children

Thank you so much for volunteering! To keep our children safe, the Archdiocese requires a background check and training.

Below are three forms and the 2 sites that you need to register on. The site work is required and we welcome your understanding for the need to keep our youth safe!

Please EMAIL THE CATECHESIS OFFICE ANY/ALL COMPLETED FORMS AND COPIES OF CERTIFICATES AND KEEP COPIES FOR YOURSELF AS WELL (do not email or mail any forms to DCFS or elsewhere – only to – Subject Line: Your Name PGC paperwork)

If you have any questions regarding the information or if you are having difficulty completing anything contact Monika McGavin in the Rectory, our parish Virtus Coordinator
