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, Wendy Caduff. For information on the specific requirements you will need to complete, and instructions on how to complete every requirement, please log into your MyBasilica account and navigate to the MyMinistry page.
