Safe Environment 

The Catholic Church in Northwest Oklahoma is committed to providing a safe environment for everyone who comes to the parish and we work diligently to ensure that all staff and those volunteers who have regular contact with children have undergone safe environment training, background and reference checks.


To be in full compliance with the Safe Environment office, each employee and those volunteers who have regular contact with children must complete each of the following and have the information on file.

 •   Attend a Safe Environment Training seminar

 •   Application for Employment or Volunteer Services

 •   From your Application, both a local and nationwide background check will be run.

 •   A Statement of Receipt and Agreement to abide by the Code of Conduct must be signed.

 •   Three Reference forms must be on file

(The Volunteer Application and Code of Conduct may be accessed at the Archdiocesan website.


If you have any questions regarding the safe environment training program, please contact the Safe Enviornment Facilitator at 580-256-2966.
