You will be required to complete a criminal background check as part of the registration process. Failure to complete the criminal background check in its entirety will delay the approval process for volunteer service. Volunteers who minister to children, youth or vulnerable adults must undergo a background check, sign a code of conduct and attend a VIRTUS session as mandated by the Diocese of Palm Beach. For more information please call 772-287-7272 ext. 106.
Safe Environments at St. Joseph
In an effort to guard the safety of Minors and Vulnerable Adults under the care of the Diocese, all Church Personnel, ages 18 and older, will be required to submit a Level 2 criminal background investigation. Eligibility for employment, volunteer work, or ministry will be contingent and conditioned upon a satisfactory background investigation. This background investigation will be updated every five (5) years. This policy applies even if an individual has been cleared through an FBI or FDLE check conducted by their employer or another non-Diocesan entity.
All Church Personnel, including applicants offered a position, independent contractors, and covered volunteers are required to successfully complete safe environment training through the VIRTUS training program. Children and youth education programs are also to be conducted yearly. Click here for more information
