Here at Saint Bridget of Sweden Parish, we take the protection of our young people and vulnerable adults very seriously. ALL employees and volunteers, regardless of ministry, are required to have a Background Check on file with the Archdiocese of Hartford and Saint Bridget of Sweden Parish. Background Checks must be renewed every 10 years. In addition, all are required to complete the Virtus Training program. A copy of the Training program certificate must be kept on file with Donna Yatcko, our Parish Safe Environment Coordinator. All must also receive a copy of the Archdiocesan Safe Environment Handbook, and the last page must be filled out and returned to Donna Yatcko. You will find links to all the required materials below.
To summarize, there are three things that all new volunteers need to provide to us: A Background Check Authorization Form, the last page of the Archdiocesan Safe Environment Handbook, and the Virtus Training Completion Certificate. All of these items should be sent to Donna Yatcko, our Parish Safe Environment Coordinator, and any questions should be directed to her at 203-272-6504 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
