PREVENT AND PROTECT STL
The Archdiocese of St. Louis has developed a Safe Environment Program called Prevent and Protect STL. All volunteers who minister or work with or near minors and/or vulnerable adults and all employees are required and asked to register in the new system, including those new to service and those who are currently in service. All volunteers and employees who work with children and vulnerable adults at St. Theodore Parish must be in full compliance with the Safe Environment Program (Prevent and Protect STL).
