Protecting God's Children

A PGC Class and background review is required for all volunteers, active or occasional.  This class helps you learn how you can be a protector of children and maybe save a child from a lifetime of pain and suffering.  Our parish community relies on the generous service of volunteers.  Without you and your commitment to service, our parish would falter. The PGC Class is only required once but the background check is required to be renewed every 5 years.  Our parish will notify you when renewal is due.  Please respond promptly when you're notified so our church can stay in compliance and you can continue to serve.

Classes are offered at St. Joseph’s at 6:30pm on the following dates:

2018:  January 17, March 13, and May 8

If you have a teen who has turned 18 they also need to take the class to be eligible to volunteer. 

To register for one of our upcoming classes please call the parish office at 483-3772.
