Safe Environment Policy: Summary

Protecting God's Children

The following information is a summary of the Safe Environment policy promoted by the Ordinariate of The Chair of Saint Peter faithfully observed in the Roman Catholic (Ordinariate) community of Blessed John Henry Newman (BJHN), Victoria, BC.

These summary pages are intended to direct those adults serving in ministries involving children to the complete policy that governs volunteers in communities of the Ordinariate of The Chair of Saint Peter. Please refer to the links supplied in the file images.

The pages are posted in the BJHN sacristy and copies in pamphlet form are distributed among volunteers.

May the following pages provide to clergy and others, e.g., Instituted Acolytes, who have the profound responsibility to ensure children are cherished and protected, a printable summary to aid increased awareness among volunteers of the official policy and training program (Virtus® Online) of the Ordinariate of The Chair of Saint Peter linked to in the same pages.

May these pages also serve to inspire in members of other communities the necessary development of policies that protect children.
