All Youth & Children's Ministry volunteers need to complete the Safeguarding God's Children training. Anyone who is planning on volunteering at VBS or Summer Youth Quest needs to complete the training on May 20th.
From the Diocese of South Carolina:
There is no question what a precious treasure our children are. As leaders in the Diocese of South Carolina, we have a moral, spiritual and canonical obligation to exercise due diligence in assuring that their faith formation happens in a safe environment. History teaches us clearly that this is not an outcome we can take for granted. There are steps we can and must take to assure the joy of their Christian Faith is not stolen from those in our care.
It is with that purpose in mind that the Diocese offers the “Safeguarding God’s Children” workshops across the Diocese. The workshops continue to be led by Mrs. Polly Sosnowski, whose years of service as a licensed clinical social worker in South Carolina make her a marvelous resource for this training. The training provided will cover the necessary material to fulfill both diocesan canons and local parish guidelines.
