Volunteers-STAND Training

All volunteers at St Mary Catholic Church need to be trained before volunteering.

 

Volunteer Information, Procedures and Materials

Thank you for volunteering at St. Mary Church and/or St. Mary School. We appreciate your willingness to support our many

programs. We require volunteers to meet the requirements of the Archdiocese of Baltimore Statement of Policy for the

Protection of Child & Youth, a program commonly referred to as STAND/Shield the Vulnerable.

St. Mary Catholic Church and the Archdiocese of Baltimore have a commitment to maintaining the trust of the faithful by providing our children and youth with safe environments characterized by healthy relationships. With our longstanding commitment in mind, all parishes and Archdiocesan Catholic Parishes use Shield the Vulnerable, a compliance management system that allows all parishes and schools to facilitate compliance with archdiocesan child protection requirements for all volunteers who work with minors, employees, and clergy.

Please register as a St. Mary Church volunteer at  http://www.shieldthevulnerable.org. and follow the prompts for background check and training.

All new volunteers should complete the process as soon as possible. Volunteers who are currently compliant with STAND requirements may continue to volunteer.
