Safe Environment Program

Thank you for volunteering at St. Theodore Catholic Church & School!
We follow the Archdiocese of St. Louis Policy, Procedures, and Guidelines. 

The Archdiocese of St. Louis offers a Safe Environment Program called Protecting God's Children.  The program is designed to protect our youth, elderly and vulnerable members of our parish as they participate in activities within our church and school community.  This process also provides a layer of protection against the possibility of false accusations for those individuals who participate in our ministries.  

If you have any questions regarding this program please contact our parish
Protecting God's Children coordinator ​Tammy Schulz at 636-288-2172
