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 or through the parish. Volunteers not directly involved with children must first complete Called to Protect for Families/Ministries, and renew every other year online or at the parish.

For more information about our Child and Youth protection policy, please visit the Diocese of Phoenix’s website.

Classes are held a few times a year at Ascension. You may also attend a class anywhere in the Diocese of Phoenix that it is offered. If you need to renew your training, you can do that online through the website. Visit the Safe Environment website to find a training location, to renew your training, or for information about reporting.
