The policies and procedures of the safe environment program of the Diocese of Jefferson City govern the practices of employees, volunteers, religious brothers and sisters, priests, deacons and bishops in fulfillment of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (“USCCB”) Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People and its Essential Norms.

In addition to the schools and parishes of the diocese, these policies also pertain to all Catholic institutions for which the diocesan bishop is a member of the corporation (collectively, “Catholic Institutions”). The primary goal of these policies is to provide a safe environment for our children by preventing the opportunity for the abuse of minors.
