THANK YOU FOR VOLUNTEERING AT IMMACULATE CONCEPTION!
Immaculate Conception Catholic Church and School follow the Archdiocese of St. Louis Safe Environment Program (Protecting God’s Children), now referred to as the Prevent and Protect STL program that offers the Protecting God's Children Workshop. The program is designed to help protect the youth, elderly, and vulnerable adults of our parish as they participate in activities within our community. This process also provides a layer of protection against the possibility of false accusations for those adults who are involved in our many ministries. If you have any questions, please call Amy Kortkamp in the Parish Office at 636-561-6611.
If you have ever taken at Protecting God's Children Workshop at any time or anywhere, you must re-register before December 31, 2020. Otherwise, if you minister to children or vulnerable adults, you will not be able to work or volunteer at Immaculate Conception Church, School, PSR, SVDP, CYC Sports, etc. When you register use the passcode: stlprotect

I have taken a Protecting God’s Children workshop. What is the next step?
The Archdiocese of St. Louis has developed a new system for safe environment compliance called Prevent and Protect STL. Everyone ministering to minors and vulnerable adults (clergy, employees and volunteers) in the Archdiocese are required and asked to register in the new system before December 31, 2020. This includes those new to service and those who are currently in service. For those who have already attended a Protecting God’s Children workshop, your previous training date will transfer to this new system. In addition to attending a live Protecting God’s Children workshop, all clergy, volunteers, and employees will register for an updated background screening, view two new online training modules on abuse reporting and the Code of Ethical Conduct, and agree to the updated Code of Ethical Conduct. Please Click Here To Register. (Enter the passcode stlprotect when prompted.) If you have questions or concerns, please contact Amy Kortkamp in the Parish Office at 636-561-6611. Click here to view the procedure page to follow for employees/volunteers when registering.
