On-Site Fingerprinting at OLHOC
Sunday, August 25th 12:45 pm (in narthex)
The Archdiocese has recently updated their Child Protection policies and have re-instituted
fingerprinting for all adult volunteers (ages 18+)
, meaning that all future
and current volunteers
(even if currently cleared under old non-fingerprinting policy) must be fingerprinted unless they have already done so
. Our Lady Help of Christians is offering
on-site fingerprinting for all those who serve in the following ministries who have contact with children/youth:
CCD/Children's Faith Formation, Youth Ministry, Sacramental Preparation Team (First Communion & Confirmation Team), Altar Servers, Children's/Youth Choir...The fingerprinting on Aug 25th is being provided only for volunteers of OLHOC, not for volunteers of other parishes.
If you fill out the paperwork beforehand it will only take a few minutes per person. Please contact either Nereida or Nieda for more information on how to sign up and to confirm if you are in need of fingerprinting.
please contact Nereida Tellechea firstname.lastname@example.org
please contact Nieda Tice Palmer email@example.com
