Protecting God's Children
St. Wendelin Parish, along with the Diocese of Pittsburgh, is committed to keeping our
children safe. Therefore in accordance with the Pittsburgh of Diocese it is our goal to get everyone in our parish who does any kind of work with children signed up in the
Centralized Diocesan Database. Voluntary personnel who perform services for the Church should consider themselves to be mandated reporters if they come into unsupervised contact with children during the course of their volunteer Church work.
All volunteers and employees (school/parish) must submit an application. If not they will
be in violation of the Diocese of Pittsburgh Safe Environment Policy. There is no cost
associated with obtaining clearances. If you need help, just let us know!
Here is the Diocese of Pittsburgh website link: https://www.diopitt.org/compliance
You should be on a page where you can select if you are a Parish Volunteer,
School Volunteer, etc. Once the selection is hit, it will take you to the clearances that are applicable to you.
