Safe & Sacred

Saint Lawrence parish is committed to providing a safe environment for minors in the parish. In order to prevent misconduct of adults toward minors (including physical, sexual or emotional abuse), St. Lawrence parish requires that every adult who works, volunteers, or associates with minors through parish activities participate in a Working with Minors Protocol Training Class. This includes a training seminar and a Criminal Background Check.

All volunteers, staff, religious and clergy in the Diocese of Lafayette-in-Indiana will be expected to complete Safe & Sacred Safe Environment Training online by December 31, 2015.

The registration process will be the same for everyone, which includes the following steps:

1. Register online with Safe & Sacred and Barada, Inc. at:;

2. Complete the course Protecting God’s Children in the 21st Century in Safe & Sacred;

3. Review the Diocesan Protocol Training booklet online, hard copies of the revised booklet will be available upon request; and

4. Receive Certificate of Completion.
