Safe Environment

Called to Protect Policy for the Protection of Minors

It is mandated by the Diocese of Phoenix and Ascension that all volunteers in ministries MUST complete the Called to Protect sessions in order to serve on a ministry. It is especially important that all volunteers who are directly involved with children complete the Called to Protect for Families/Ministries. An annual renewal session can be completed online.
