Safe Environment

Protecting Children

Mandatory training for those that minister

As a community of faith, we believe that the prevention of child sexual abuse begins with each person. Increased awareness and a willingness to take action are steps for every person to take to eradicate abuse in our society, in the community, in the neighborhood, and in the family. 

All those who minister (volunteers, employees and clergy) in the Diocese of Oakland are to be educated about the nature of child sexual abuse, how it is perpetrated, how to report it and strategies for prevention. Training is mandatory for all who minister, first before starting work or volunteering and then every 3 years thereafter. For more information, please visit the Diocese of Oakland website.

Also, as a volunteer, please remember to complete your volunteer application. Please download, fill out and return to the office.
