Safe Environment Requirements at Saint Mark
Protecting God's Children Workshop
In order to follow the Diocese of Charlotte’s requirements, all volunteers are required to have a background check on file before they can participate in any ministry. Any person in a position that interacts with children, the elderly or any vulnerable adults in any manner is required to complete a Protecting God’s Children (PGC) workshop and continue training before they can start volunteering. However, we encourage ALL volunteers to complete this certification.
PGC helps us learn to recognize the warning signs of abuse and the many ways that sexual abuse harms victims, families, parishes and communities. It teaches us appropriate ways to respond to suspicious behaviors and how to prevent abuse. It’s a program established to help us protect ourselves as volunteers.
We currently have a PGC workshop scheduled on
Saturday, September 14
, from 10 am to 1 pm here at Saint Mark (Room 200). To register and obtain more information about this process, click on “Safe Environment” at
and follow the instructions provided.
We are committed to a safe environment for all members of our community. Thank you for helping us in this process!
