Safe Environment

Welcome to Our Lady of Grace’s Safe Environment page where you can gather all of the information you need to become an active volunteer at Our Lady of Grace Parish and School. We are humbled by and grateful for your desire to join our parish family in a unique and critical way as a volunteer with our youth. The church relies so much on your involvement and dedication to our mission of living the Gospel and holding the dignity of each person in great esteem. Without your work and involvement, we would not be able to offer all of these programs to our parish family. There are a variety of components required of you as a volunteer before you give of your time and talents in this way. These clearances and trainings are asked of you in order to keep our children and volunteers safe and create a community built on trust and transparency. Thank you, again, for taking the time to volunteer with us and complete all of these components of the Safe Environment program. Please take this opportunity now to check out the different clearances and trainings and see what needs to be completed for each. Any and all questions can be directed to Juli Flynn, Safe Environment Coordinator at the Parish Offices (215-757-7700) located in the Rectory.
