Protecting God's Children

St. Paul Church and School follow the Archdiocese of St. Louis Safe Environment Program (Protecting God's Children). The program is designed to help protect the youth, elderly and vulnerable adults of our parish as they participate in activities within our community.  

Any adult who works or volunteers with young people must attend a Protecting God’s Children workshop, agree to the Code of Ethical Conduct, and agree to undergo a background check that is updated in even-numbered years.  Student volunteers are required to sign a Code of Ethical Conduct for Minors.
