Protecting God's Children
The completion of a Protecting God's Children course is now mandatory for all employees and volunteers in the Diocese of Charlotte, including Ushers, Greeters, Lectors, Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist, Catechists, and Musicians. As paid and unpaid staff and volunteers, we all have a role in protecting children, young people, and vulnerable adults. The diocese has adopted policies and procedures to safeguard those whose care has been entrusted to us. A course has been designed to help adults recognize and prevent the abuse of children, young people, and vulnerable adults. If you volunteer at St. Elizabeth Catholic Church and you do not have current certification for the completion of this course, please register for the class which we are offering on Wednesday, May 2 at 6:00 PM by contacting the Director of Faith Formation, Ellisa Hayes, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the office at 828-264-8338, Ext. 22 by April 26.
