St. Michael's Parish

Protecting God’s Children

The Diocese of Springfield requires all volunteers and staff to attend a Protecting God's Children training and background check. This class is required for anyone volunteering in any capacity at our church & school. We will be offering several training sessions in the upcoming months. The class is a one -time class, and lasts approximately 2 1/2 hours. The class consists of watching videos and some discussion. While this class is required for all volunteers and staff of the church and school, we believe that you will find it informative as you care for your children or grandchildren. To register, please call the parish office at 618-635-3140 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

*ALL VOLUNTEERS MUST TAKE THIS CLASS—THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS.
