safe environment


protecting the vulnerable

St John’s, Calgary, and the entire Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St Peter, is committed to providing a safe environment for all our parishioners — from the youngest to the oldest. As a part of that effort, the Ordinariate has instituted a robust Safe Environment programme. St John’s participates fully in it. We provide mandatory training (including detailed background checks) for all volunteers who work with children. We also provide parents with materials to use in discussing safe environment issues with their own children. 

If you would like to read about the Ordinariate’s Safe Environment policy in detail, please visit the Ordinariate's Safe Environment pages here.

Please also note the procedure in the Ordinariate for making a complaint of sexual abuse of a minor, here.

If you have any questions about the safe environment programme, and its implementation at St John's, or if you would like to begin the safe environment process, please contact the Safe Environment Coordinator for the parish.
