To volunteer with one of the great programs at Christ Our King parish, the Diocese of Charleston has mandated all volunteers and employees must complete a Safe Environment screening process prior to volunteering or working with children and vulnerable adults. This program is designed to keep our church community safe from all forms of abuse. The mission of the Safe Environment Program is to ensure that children, young people, and vulnerable individuals who worship, study, or participate in activities sponsored therein can do so in the safest and most secure setting possible.
Before you can begin to volunteer with minors or vulnerable adults, you must complete a background screening, read and agree to adhere to the Diocesan Policy Concerning Allegations of Sexual Misconduct, read and adhere to the Code of Conduct Agreement, and complete a Safe Haven online training course.
Please contact our Safe Environment Coordinator Ginger Cuttino at (843) 884-5587 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Thank you for your service, and for helping to enrich the lives of those around you.
Child Abuse Prevention Blessing
Dear Lord, We ask You to bless these Your holy people who have participated in the Church’s efforts to help stop child sexual abuse. Open their hearts to Your call to be the “ears, eyes and voice of children and young people” everywhere. Give them the vision and grace needed to fulfill the special commitments that each of them has made to making their homes, churches, schools, communities and world a safer place for all God’s Children. Amen
