The success of our Parish is solely dependent on the willingness of volunteers. We ask you to help the parish grow and succeed by volunteering your time and talents. All volunteers over the age of 18, within the Diocese of Trenton, are required to be fingerprinted for federal and state background check, background checks will be obtained through fingerprint analysis conducted by the New Jersey State Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation AND comply with the “Protecting God’s Children” Program, a “Safe Environment” workshop called “VIRTUS.”  You must be cleared by both prior to joining a ministry.

Using the following NEW VOLUNTEER STEP BY STEP GUIDE, you will be walked through the process to register for fingerprinting and the VIRTUS course.

If you have been fingerprinted and/or attended VIRTUS previously in another Parish, we will be able to transfer your records. If you were fingerprinted for your current employer that will not be accepted. You need to come in compliance through the Diocese of Trenton.

OUR PROMISE TO PROTECT The Diocese of Trenton is committed to the initiatives outlined in the U.S. Bishop’s Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People in regard to the reporting and investigation of sexual abuse allegations involving minors. If you have been sexually abused as a minor by a member of the clergy or anyone representing the Catholic Church, or if you know of someone who was, you can report that abuse through the diocesan Abuse Hotline: 1-888-296-2965 or via e-mail at abuseline@dioceseoftrenton.org. The Diocese of Trenton reports any allegations of sexual abuse to the appropriate law enforcement agencies. Anyone with an allegation is also encouraged to provide that information to local law enforcement authorities.
