Safe Environment/Called to Protect
St. Matthew is blessed to have numerous ministries that work with children and youth. Our commitment to provide protection to the children and youth in our care necessitates that we comply with the archdiocese's safe environment regulations. Therefore, all volunteers working in our children's ministries are required to do the following:
- Register on the database - cmgconnect.org;
- Complete archdiocesan safe environment training prior to and within three years of service; (first time, in-person; renewals, online);
- Undergo a background check through the archdiocese prior to and within three years of service.
It is up to each volunteer to register, fulfill training requirements, and order a background check as necessary
In order to satisfy all requirements, please follow the instructions below:
