Safe environment PROGRAM (protecting god's children)
St. Roch Parish and School follow the Archdiocese of St. Louis's Safe Environment Program (Protecting God's Children). The program is designed to help protect the youth, elderly, and vulnerable adults of our parish and school as they participate in activities within our community.
To ensure the safety and well-being of our community, completion of a Protecting God's Children Workshop and a background screening are required for employment and to serve as a St. Roch volunteer.
