Safeguarding All God's Family

The parish and school put the safety and well-being of our students and parishioners at the highest regard. In order to uphold this commitment, we as a parish and school comply with the Archdiocese of Milwaukee’s requirement to ensure that all staff and volunteers have completed and met the Safeguarding requirements to work and/or volunteer with our children and youth. The goal of the Safeguarding All of God's Family program is to protect our children and all in the church family from abuse and related dangers.
