CONTACT: CBC Coordinator, Karen Diamond
Our children are the most important gifts God has entrusted to us. Therefore a volunteer at St. Michael parish and school must submit a criminal background check form to the CBC Coordinator and participate in one of the "Protecting God’s Children" workshops offered by the Archdiocese of Detroit.
A criminal background check must be completed before a person can volunteer in any capacity with children in the parish. Criminal background checks can be submitted to Karen Diamond through the school office before volunteering in any capacity with children in the parish. Click for a Criminal Background Check form.
Volunteers are also required to participate in a Protecting God's Children workshop. Due to the seriousness of this matter, it is MANDATORY that all volunteers participate in this program. The Archdiocese of Detroit mandates that the workshop be attended within one year of the volunteer filing for a background check. If you filed a background check form last year, but have not attended a workshop, please be aware that you will not be able to volunteer in any activity involving children or the elderly (this includes driving on field trips) for the 2012-2013 year. Workshops are offered all year.
The next workshop at St. Michael is September 25, 2012. REGISTER
To receive credit for the workshop, participants must register at www.virtus.org/virtus/ A copy of your certificate of completion must be sent to the school office or rectory marked to the attention of "Karen Diamond".
