St. Pius X Church follows the recommendations of the Seattle Archdiocese to ensure that children and vulnerable adults served by our parish are safe from abuse. Staff and volunteers who have ongoing, unsupervised access to these individuals are required to have criminal background checks and participate in the Safe Environment Program training.
All staff are required to have a background check as a term of employment. Volunteers who have access to cash and assets must provide information required for a background check as well. Employees and volunteers at St. Pius X Parish will be instructed by their supervisor on how to fulfill the requirements needed to work in the church environment.
Everyone is encouraged to view the information on the Safe Environment Program website of the Archdiocese of Seattle. The policies, training and education are important for everyone in the community. Working together, we can utilize the training materials in our schools, church and ministries to provide a safe environment for everyone.
Please feel free to call the parish office with questions about the Safe Environment Program.
