Safe Environment Program

Required for all volunteers and employees that work with children and vulnerable adults.

The Archdiocese of St. Louis has developed a new system for safe environment compliance called Prevent and Protect STL. Everyone ministering to minors and vulnerable adults (clergy, employees and volunteers) are required and asked to register in the new system.

1) First, download the easy to follow instructions by clicking here.
2) Register online at Prevent and Protect STL.
3) Once you are registered you will be able to complete other required steps, such as register to attend a Protecting God's Children workshop(if you have done a workshop in the past you don’t have to do another one), online training, and a background check all from this single website account.
4) If you need help or more information, please contact the Child Safety Coordinator, Linda Brindley at 314-838-6565 or email
