Safe Environment Training
The Archdiocese of Indianapolis requires that
everyone who has regular contact with children in church ministry must
participate in a safe environment training program called Safe & Sacred. This requirement is part of the Archdiocese
efforts in providing a safe environment for the children who participate in all
of the various ministries of the church.

In order to participate in CYO grade school sports, all
participants must be either a student enrolled in a Catholic school or a
child residing in a household registered in and participating in a
Catholic parish. A participating household is determined by official
registration on the parish roster. However, pastors, at their
discretion, may also require regular attendance at Mass and or active
participation in the religious education or youth ministry programs
offered by the parish.
