In keeping with the archdiocesan policy regarding the protection of minors, St. Joseph the Worker requires all catechists and employees who work with children under 18 to take an online training program designed to educate people about the potential warning signs of sexual predators and to help institutions develop a plan to protect minors from sexual abuse. The program, offered by Catholic Mutual Group, complies with the Bishop’s Charter for the Protection of Children and Vulnerable Adults. All catechists are expected to complete this training.
Additionally, the Office for the Protection of Children from the Archdiocese of Dubuque provides publications which help us be more informed of the issues and topics related to the abuse of children. It is our sincere hope that by partnering together we can continually provide the safest possible environment for all our young people to grow into healthy, Christ-filled adults.
