Who needs fingerprinting?

Parish volunteers are required by the Diocese of Orlando to have a background check clearance through the Diocese of Orlando every five years and to have successfully completed the Safe Environment Training prior to serving. This is a requirement by the Orlando diocese of all who participate in church sponsored ministries and programs. It is meant for the protection of children and vulnerable adults:
All persons age 15 or older engaged in work or volunteer  activities involving Vulnerable Populations  must be fingerprinted.

What needs to be done:

  • Read the information contained in the Safe Environment Training Directions below and follow all directions
  • Register, and make an appointment for fingerprinting.  Payment will be made by Blessed Sacrament.
  • Watch the 20 minute training Video."Protecting Our Youth".
  • Take a short on-line quiz afterwards. If you fail the quiz, you may rewatch the video and take it again.
