Reminder for All Parent Volunteers:  Every HFS volunteer (parent, grandparent, family member 18+, caregiver etc.) must have submitted the ALL the Safeguard the Children requirements to Holy Family parish prior to signing up to  volunteer for supervising children in any capacity such as driving students to a field trip, serving hot lunch, attending overnight trips, coaching, scouting, supervising students in the drama program or any parish program where an individual will be volunteering with or around children. 

We appreciate that every parish and ministry wants to cooperate fully with Archdiocesan policies in providing a safe environment and we are aware that appointments can be difficult to find because the schedules fill up rapidly. Please emphasize the importance of keeping an appointment or calling in advance to cancel so that others can be given the opportunity to be fingerprinted.

If you have any questions about Virtus, Live Scan Fingerprinting, Guidelines for Adults Interacting with Minors at Parish/School Activities or Events requirements/or the formation of Safeguard the Children Committee, please contact Donella Sotelo.

We thank you in advance for your patience as we move towards our common goal: Protecting the Faithful of the Future.
