Safe Environment Information
We are committed to providing a safe and secure environment for all members, guests, and those who participate in our ministries. To that end, we conduct background checks and require VIRTUS training for all persons who volunteer in positions involving risk, particularly those serving children, youth, and vulnerable adults.
A driving record check is completed on all volunteers who drive as part of their responsibilities and a credit check on those who handle large sums of money. Every three years volunteers are required to go through a re-credentialing process.
If you have questions about any of these policies or how to complete any requirements please contact The Basilica's Safe Environment Coordinator, Ashley Wyatt
VIRTUS Website - on this website you can request a background check, sign up to attend VIRTUS training, and sign a Volunteer Code of Conduct. Have questions on using the website or need help? See a PDF document below.
Adult Volunteer's Code of Conduct - All adult volunteers (those 18 and older) are required to read and sign this form annually, regardless of their role at The Basilica
Youth Volunteer Code of Conduct - The Basilica asks our children and youth who serve our community to sign a Code of Conduct crafted specifically for them annually
