Catechists and Volunteers
The Diocese of Salina is committed to maintaining safe environments for children to learn, pray, and grow. The Safe Environment Office supports our parishes and schools and maintains compliance with our Diocese through our Safe Environment Program.
The Safe Environment Program outlines how the Diocese of Salina has implemented the s Charter for Protection of Children and Young People. A copy of the charter can be found on The Diocese of Salina website.
All those who minister to children or young people are required to take training on the nature of child sexual abuse, how it is perpetrated, how to report it, and strategies for prevention. The Diocese of Salina has implemented a training program by the name of “CMGConnect”.
CMGConnect is a national program, widely in use in dioceses throughout the United States. It is a web-based on-line training program that specializes in helping churches and religious organizations create safe environments for children and youth. The program is mandatory for all adults, employees, or volunteers, who interact on a regular basis with children in the Salina Diocese.
