Protecting Our Children

Here at Our Lady of the Valley, we pledge to provide a safe environment for our children and all those who are vulnerable.

All priests, deacons, staff members, and all volunteers who have any contact whatsoever with children and other vulnerable persons are required to be trained through VIRTUS or Safe Haven in how to provide a safe environment. These same people receive background screenings in addition to education on how to make the safest environment possible.

Parents of our children are always welcome to ask questions and tour our facilities. Join in helping us end sexual abuse of children wherever it happens.
