St. Andrew’s to offer Safeguarding God’s People training

On Saturday, November 10, from 9:30-12:30,  St. Andrew’s will offer a training session in Safeguarding God’s People.

The Diocese of Olympia takes its responsibility for the safety of our people seriously. The Safe Church program teaches how to identify and prevent abuse within the church community, and is conducted several times per year, free of charge. The training consists of two sessions: Safeguarding God’s Children and Safeguarding God’s People.

Safeguarding God’s Children and People is required for all canonically resident and licensed clergy. Safeguarding God’s People is required for non-clergy who have a key to the church facility, vestry and bishop committee members, church staff, and eucharistic visitors.

To register, please contact the church office by email  or by phone at 253-564-4402. If you register via email, please include: first and last name, congregation and city, email, phone number, and role (clergy, Eucharistic Visitor etc.).
