Dear Parish Volunteer,
Thank you for your interest in volunteering to serve our parish. In an effort to keep our children safe, the Archdiocese of Newark requires all volunteers in all ministries to complete a volunteer form for background checks (all forms must have date of birth and social security number) and attend a Protecting God’s Children session. Doreen Allaghi is the Local Safe Environment Coordinator for Queen of Peace, her contact information is firstname.lastname@example.org, 201-997-0700 x116.
We are pleased to offer the opportunity for an in-person Protecting God’s Children session right here at Queen of Peace on the following date:
Thursday, October 12, 2023 at 7:00 pm in the QOP Grammar School Cafeteria
The volunteer forms are attached, please fill out the forms and email them to Doreen or drop them off at the rectory office. Once you receive the letter that your background check is complete you will need to enroll for a session of Protecting God’s Children at www.virtusonline.org. Please submit your completed certificate to Doreen.
Anyone involved in any parish ministry or school program that needs to complete or renew their certificate may sign up to attend this session. A Spanish language session will be arranged for a date to be announced. Please register for this session or check on the website (www.virtusonline.org) for other available classes. You will not be admitted to this session unless you have previously registered online.
Thank you for your continued commitment to serve your parish.
