Protection of God's Children

At All Saints Catholic Church and All Saints Youth Ministry, keeping young people safe is our number one priority. We are committed to the Diocesan policy for the Safety and Protection of Children and Youth which requires that all clergy, employees, and volunteers who have contact with children complete criminal background checks and attend a live training seminar called “Protecting God’s Children.”

All adult volunteers are required to undergo a background check. It is now available online via the Diocese of Arlington’s Office of Children Protection Website

If you wish to volunteer in Youth Ministry, you will also need to contact Cristina Jimenez, All Saints’ Coordinator of Child Protection at [email protected]. Let her know you wish to be a Youth Ministry volunteer.

Finally, The Diocese of Arlington provides numerous opportunities to attend a one-time 4 hour training. By becoming aware of the warning signs of abuse, by paying attention and working together, we create an environment at All Saints where our youth are protected and safe. This training is helpful for all adults and parents.
