Safe Environment For Our Children
As required by the Charter, all employees and volunteers who have regular contact with children at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church must undergo fingerprinting by the U.S. Department of Justice, register with the Diocese of Santa Rosa, and participate in training on the recognition and reporting of child abuse. Children who attend religious education programs take part in the scripturally based Safe Kids/Smart Kids program which gives information on personal safety, the sacredness of the body, trusting feelings of discomfort, and ways to get help if it is needed.
Our Lady of Guadalupe Church is committed to the safety and well-being of its youngest and most vulnerable parishioners. For more information please contact the Safe Environment Coordinator at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church:
