Protecting God's Children

Protecting God's Children and Database.

Thank you for offering your time and talents at St. Winifred Parish.  To ensure the safety of all who come to St. Winifred, all volunteers and employees are asked to complete several elements as set up by the Diocese of Pittsburgh guidelines.

All volunteers and paid staff must complete an on-line Diocesan Database form.  You can get a copy by calling the Faith Formation office (412) 563-1414. You can also fill out the form online at Diocese of Pittsburgh website  diocesan password 'protect' 

To confirm our intent to help with the safety of all people, please read the "Code of Pastoral Conduct" and "The Child Protective Service Law" that will be given to you at the time you volunteer.  (You can also get this booklet at the Faith Formation office.)  Please sign the last page, remove it from the booklet and either drop it off at the rectory or mail it to 550 Sleepy Hollow Road Pittsburgh 15228. 

To better understand how we can all be aware of those who may need protection,  the Diocese has set up a one time session workshop called Protecting God's Children (PGC).   This workshop is designed to help all adults who volunteer or work for the Catholic Church understand how they can help prevent child abuse. All adults who volunteer or work for the Church are required to attend. Click here to access the online course
