Safe Environments Abuse Prevention Training – September 2022
In the Diocese of Norwich, all volunteers who have regular contact with minors, all
employees, all clergy, and all religious, are required to complete safe environments
training. This training is monitored by the Office for Safe Environments (OSE).
In addition, this training is also available to any parishioner, or parent of a parochial
school child, regardless of whether or not they wish to volunteer at their parish or
school. It contains important information about keeping our children and youth safe.
The Diocese of Norwich offers two Praesidium programs. Both cover the same
material, just in different formats. You can take the on-line program, Praesidium, or
attend a one-time DVD presentation, Called to Protect.
NOTE: The in person Called to Protect training classes have been postponed until further
notice. Praesidium on line is available and the preferred training at this time.
The OSE can be contacted to provide adult programs for parents, parishioners and all
interested in keeping our youth safe, such as Setting Boundaries. A convenient time
can be arranged.
Please contact Kathy Bergeron (email@example.com) for more information.
