Save Environment Compliance and Workshop Schedule

St. Cronan Parish follows the Archdiocese of St. Louis Safe Environment Program (Protecting God’s Children). The program is designed to help protect the youth, elderly, and vulnerable adults of our parish as they participate in activities within our community. This process also provides a layer of protection against the possibility of false accusations for those adults who are involved in our many ministries.


For more information contact Diane Gozdzialski


All parish staff and volunteers interacting with youth or vulnerable adults are required to complete a Protecting God’s Children workshop, background check, and compliance registration in the Archdiocesan Prevent and Protect program.
