Safe Environment

At All Saints, we want everyone to feel safe and welcome while serving and worshiping with us. For that reason, we require all volunteers who work with minors and vulnerable adults and all staff to submit to a vetting and training process called Safe Environment.

SAFE ENVIRONMENT CLEARANCE IS REQUIRED FOR ALL VOLUNTEERS WHO WORK WITH A MINISTRY INVOLVED WITH YOUTH (UNDER AGE 18) AND/OR VULNERABLE ADULTS. 

This includes but is certainly not limited to school programs (e.g. lunchroom or playground monitors, field trip chaperones, office help, clinic help, sports coaches, tutors, after school activity leaders, etc.), Religious Education teachers and aides, ASCS Pre-School, Youth Ministries, nursery care, children’s choir & music programs, boy scouts/girls scouts and related programs, Vacation Bible School, Vacation Adventures (summer camps), Masters of Ceremony, extraordinary ministers of Eucharist, ushers/greeters, Disabilities Ministry, and many more.

Volunteers in Key Leadership Positions:
To lead by example and actively demonstrate support for the Safe Environment Program, each member of the major Parish and School Committees as well as the President/Chairperson of major Parish and School Organizations are expected to maintain an active Safe Environment Clearance and to employ Safe Environment practices in any activity sponsored by that organization.

All volunteers, regardless of the ministry, are invited to become Safe Environment Cleared Adults in order to expand our cadre of aware and vigilant and action oriented brothers and sisters with respect to the risks of neglect or abuse.
