Child Safety Training
Code of Conduct
Every three years our clergy, staff and volunteers are required to sign our Code of Conduct in regard to behavioural expectations while performing their duties in our Parish.
We are also required to watch a training module which explains the Safeguarding Essentials as mandated by the Archdiocese of Melbourne and the State Government.
For all those who work or volunteer in our Parish we must have a record that you have signed the Code of Conduct and completed the training.
These can all be completed online:
