Safe Environment Program

PROTECTING GOD’S CHILDREN INFORMATION & FORMS

St. Joseph Catholic Church follows the Archdiocese of St. Louis Safe Environment Program (Protecting God’s Children). The program is designed to help protect the youth, elderly, and vulnerable adults of our parish as they participate in activities within our community. This process also provides a layer of protection against the possibility of false accusations for those adults who are involved in our many ministries. If you have any questions, please call Karen Bencke at (314) 726-1221.
