We are committed to protecting children, youth and vulnerable adults in all parish activities and sponsored ministries.
All clergy and parish, school and archdiocesan employees, as well as all volunteers who have either regular or unsupervised interaction with minors, (or with vulnerable adults) must complete the Essential 3 (E3) requirements:
- Background Check
- Code of Conduct
- Safe Environment Training
Once completed, these are recredentialed every three years for those still in active ministry.
Please contact Ed Howard, Safe Environment Coordinator for assistance.

If you suspect abuse or need assistance, you can find the phone numbers for contacting authorities in the proper area of Minnesota at the MN Department of Human Services- Child Protection by clicking here. Remember if a child or vulnerable adult is in immediate danger, you should always call 911.
