Please see the document in the Forms and Docs section on the left.  The workshop is being held on Tuesday, September 29th @ 6:30 pm in the gym.

The Archdiocese of Newark mandates that all adults (18+) who volunteer/work with children attend a Protecting God’s Children Workshop and have a background check.  Re-certification for the workshop takes place every 3 years, and a new background check is required every 5 years.
