A thorough background check is required for all those employed or volunteering to work with youth or vulnerable adults as a cleric, at a parish or school, as an Archdiocesan employee or at an Archdiocesan institution. All volunteers and employees are required to complete the electronic/online background check through Selection.com prior to beginning their volunteer activity or employment. In addition to the electronic/online background check, employees are required to complete manual fingerprinting and submit a B4 form before beginning their employment at an Archdiocesan parish, school, or institution.
Saint Ignatius School enforces the Archdiocesan policy for protecting children. All employees of Saint Ignatius School adhere to the Child Protection Decree, get fingerprinted, and have a background check.
Volunteers in our school must also adhere to the Child Protection Decree and have a background check prior to volunteering. SafeParish is the new Child Protection Platform for the Archdiocese, taking the place of VIRTUS. All volunteers and employees should have received an email from SafeParish inviting them to register for their SafeParish account. If you did not receive the email, please check your spam or junk mail folders. All new volunteers and employees should follow the SafeParish registration instructions for creating a SafeParish account.
You can also find a copy of the SafeParish registration instructions by going to the Archdiocese of Cincinnati’s Safe Environment Office webpage. Once there, go to Top Resources and then click the link for SafeParish.
