The Diocese of Central Pennsylvania wants the Episcopal Church to be a safe place for all people to live into the love of our Lord Jesus Christ and to fulfill the vows and promises made in Baptism. We believe that this can happen only when everyone feels safe and when the representatives of the church can be trusted. Safeguarding God’s Children is a training program for sexual abuse awareness and provides participants information they need to protect the children they know and care for in their personal lives and in the ministries in which they serve.
The Diocese of Central PA requires all who are employed by the congregation (full-time, part time & sub contractors), all who serve on vestry, all who work in children and youth ministry, all who volunteer with children and youth and those who have keys to any of the church grounds to take this training from a diocesan-certified trainer. Diocesan certificates will be issued upon completion of the course.
Training will be offered in person at Saint James, 119 N. Duke Street, Lancaster, PA 17602 in the parish house’s forum room.
If you select the virtual option, the Zoom link will be provided within a week of the event. You will be contacted by a Safeguarding God’s Children Trainer.
Participants will be given a certificate as proof of their attendance and completion of the course.
