Safe Environment Training
To Protect Our Youth and Vulnerable Adults
St. Lawrence volunteers who are entrusted with the care, responsibility, and or supervision of children, youth, or vulnerable adults or who wants unsupervised access to these vulnerable populations MUST successfully complete a Level 2 FBI/Florida Department of Law Enforcement background check performed by the Diocese of St. Petersburg based on electronic fingerprinting. In addition, one must successfully complete a three-hour Safe Environment Program (SEP) training course tailored to adults who want unsupervised access to children and youth or adults who want unsupervised access to vulnerable adults (this training is also known as Eucharistic Ministers of Holy Communion to the Homebound/Pastoral Care Providers SEP training).
To get started with your background check and Safe Environment training, please contact your Ministry leader to find out the most recent procedures.
