"One of the greatest responsibilities adults ever face is the protection of children under their care. That is a duty that falls heavily upon those who minister in the name of the Church because children are entrusted to us in so many ways – in schools, in religious education, in Scouting, on field trips and in sports. Parents have a right to expect that their children are as safe as humanly possible in all of these situations." - Archbishop Schnurr
In seeking to live out the responsibility mentioned by Archbishop Schnurr, Immaculate Conception acts in accord with the Child Protection Decree issued by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. For details visit the Archdiocese's website.
All people who intend to work or volunteer in any of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati parishes, schools, or institutions, must also be in compliance with the Decree on Child Protection before you are approved to work with children. Below there is information on how to reach compliance.
If you have any question, please contact our Safe Environment Coordinator, Martha Lombard.
