Safeguarding All of God's Family

Safe Environment Education Session

We are hosting a Safe Environment Education session at St. Leonard on Tuesday, Oct. 24 at 6:30 p.m. in the Gathering Space. Pre-registration is required and takes about an hour. You can register for any upcoming Safe Environment session- click here.

Safe Environment certification is required for all parish staff and volunteers ages 18 and up who interact with minors in any capacity. Awareness sessions give attendees the skills and resources to become advocates for child safety, both in our Catholic parishes and schools as well as in our communities.  


General Information

At St. Leonard Catholic Church & School, we are committed to providing a safe environment with healthy relationships for all students, parents, school personnel, volunteers, and clergy.

The goal of the Safeguarding All of God’s Family program is to protect our children and all in the church family from all forms of abuse and neglect.

  • Authorize a criminal background check
  • Read and sign the Code of Ethical Standards and read the Mandatory Reporting Statement
