Protecting God’s Children Certification

If you intend on working with minors through either Mary Immaculate Parish or the Newman Center, you need to have completed a Protecting God’s Children workshop.  To find the next available workshop, register online at  Scroll to Jefferson City Diocese, and find the time and location that is most convenient to you.

If you already have had this training, please contact Pat Lehr ( with the name of your diocese, parish & approximate date of your workshop, and she can facilitate having your compliance registered in our diocese as well.  You can also provide a copy of the attendance certificate you may have received at the workshop you attended.

The session may have been called a Safe Environment or VIRTUS session if you don’t recognize the name “Protecting God’s Children.” Thank you for being involved in our local community!
