Archdiocesan Safe Environment Program
The Archdiocese of Atlanta is committed to helping children and young people learn and grow in a healthy and safe environment. St. Francis of Assisi complies with archdiocesan safe environment policies and procedures in accordance with the U.S. Bishop’s Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People. Safe Environment programs are in place to assist parents and children—and those whose duties involve contact with minors—in preventing harm to young people.
The Archdiocese of Atlanta proudly offers Safe Environment training materials to all schools and parishes. VIRTUS Protecting God’s Children (commonly referred to as “Virtus”) is the training program for adults and children in grades Kindergarten through 12th grade.
We are happy to partner with you in working to keep your children safe. Please visit the Archdiocesan Safe Environment page for information on reporting child abuse.
