Safe and Sacred is now Safe Parish!

Our Lady of the Greenwood Catholic School has an incredible faculty and staff, but we depend also upon the many generous people who serve the school and its students. Many parents and other family members, and many parishioners as well, volunteer each day and help to make daily life at Our Lady of the Greenwood as wonderful as it is.

In order to ensure compliance with the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and the policies of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, you must complete the Safe Parish material.  This must be done before you start working with children in your volunteer work.

Once you have communicated with the school office and have completed the online training, the final step is to complete the form below.

We are so thankful for your ministry and your gifts of time and talent. God bless you!
