Protecting Our Children

Working with the Youth of St. John Neumann

Protecting our children is a primary concern at St John Neumann. Any adult coming into contact with our children in any SJN program must first meet certain criteria. These programs include catechists, volunteers, Vacation Bible School leaders, drivers, aides, chaperones et al. The two requirements are a background check and VIRTUS training.

Background Check

This is completed by a national service selected by the diocese.
