Archdiocesan Policy:
The Archdiocese of St. Louis is committed to the prevention of child abuse and to assisting those who are affected by incidents of child abuse.  For purposes of this policy, child abuse means physical injury, sexual abuse, or emotional abuse inflicted on a child, other than by accidental means, by those responsible for the child's care, custody and control or from persons who are agents or employees of the Archdiocese of St. Louis.  All employees, volunteers, religious, priests and deacons working in the schools, parishes and agencies of the Archdiocese of St.  Louis are required to support this Policy and to comply with the Procedures developed to implement the Policy.

Anyone who works with or volunteers with children must be compliant with the Safe Environment Program of the Archdiocese of Saint Louis set forth by the USCCB (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops)
