Safe Environment

Fingerprinting and Safe Environment clearance must be completed before the start of volunteer work.  The first step to securing your clearance is to download the Diocesan application found at the bottom of this page.  Once completed, return this application to our Front Office, and we will submit it to the Diocesan database.
 
FINGERPRINTING
Once the Diocese of Orange has accepted your application, we will provide you with a Live Scan Fingerprinting form.  This form, along with a photo ID, may be taken to any Certifix location.  Find the location nearest you by visiting www.certifixlivescan.com
 
The fee is $47.  Please contact the location directly for acceptable forms of payment.  The Certifix agent will provide you with a copy of your Life Scan form to return to the school.  
 
SAFE ENVIRONMENT
All volunteers are required to take the online course "Protect Children."  This course takes about ninety (90) minutes and may be accessed at www.shieldthevulnerable.org.  When finished, please print the certificate of completion and provide a copy to our Front Office.
 
This course must be re-taken every four (4) years.

Once both steps of the above process are completed, 3 service hours may be logged for Fingerprinting and Safe Environment training.
