Protecting God's Children

In order to protect the safety of all children and vulnerable adults, the U. S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has mandated compliance with the Protecting God's Children Program by all employees and volunteers who work with children and vulnerable adults in any way. Therefore, if you have any contact with children and vulnerable adults at Mary Queen of Peace Parish, whether it be through the school or any organization, you must comply with this Program.
