Important class on January 16 for many church volunteers

SafeguardingDear Volunteers,

“The Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth is committed to providing a healthy, safe, and nurturing environment in which all of God’s people can carry out the work God has given us to do.”

If you are a:

  • Vestry member, or about to be one
  • Lay Eucharistic Minister
  • Lay Eucharistic Visitor
  • Ministry Head
  • Worship Leader
  • New Employee
  • Volunteer who works with vulnerable people

and you have not taken this training within the last three years, then you MUST take Safeguarding God’s People: Prevention of Sexual Exploitation.

Please plan to come to St. Martin-in-the-Fields on Saturday, January 16, from 10 am – 2 pm. This class will be taught by the Rev. Melanie R. Barbarito in the small, west parish hall. There is no charge for this class. Please bring your own lunch.

Vestry members will also need to take Safeguarding God’s People: Preventing Sexual Harassment of Church Workers, and can choose to take it directly after the first class on January 16.
