Maintaining Our Safe Environment


As clergy, staff or volunteers of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, WE are the first line of defense in the Archdiocese’s commitment to keep the children entrusted in its care safe from abuse. Archdiocesan policy requires that volunteers (unpaid) that have any possible contact with or responsibility for children, even if it is a one-time event, need background checks. (Example: chaperone for field trip, homeroom mom, teacher’s helper, school store volunteers, Secret Santa Volunteers, etc.)

Mrs. Meghan Bonkoski leads our Safe Environment Clearance process and would like you to feel free to get in touch with her at any time via email.  She has put together a very comprehensive document that explains all of the steps,  forms, training, etc. that you must complete before beginning any paid or volunteer service in which you would be responsible for the welfare of a child or have direct contact with children:
