Posted on: May 29th, 2018

As Christians we are called to ensure to the best of our ability that our parishes and ministries offer a safe environment to all, particularly to the children and vulnerable adults such as the sick, elderly, or disabled.  In accordance with the Eparchy of Edmonton's protocol, "Working Together for Safer Environments," training workshops in abuse prevention and best practices are now being scheduled.  These training workshops will be offered on an ongoing basis for existing and new employees/volunteers and will be offered at various times and various locations throughout the Eparchy.  Abuse Prevention Training for Parish Ministry Leaders and Volunteers will be held on:
