About Called To Protect
The Diocese of Phoenix is committed to providing a safe environment where we value and honor every individual as created in the image and likeness of God. Ideally no minor will ever be abused; these policies are intended to achieve this ideal. The Diocese of Phoenix is dedicated to upholding a culture of safety and the protection of all of God’s children from abuse.
Relationships among people are the foundation of ministry and evangelization within the Catholic Church. Defining healthy boundaries and policies to maintain safe environments are not meant to undermine the importance of personal contact or the ministerial role in any way. Rather, they are meant to assist all diocesan personnel and volunteers within the Diocese of Phoenix to minister safely with consistent written standards which will safeguard all minors, the well being of the community, and the integrity of the Catholic Church.
In additional to training everyone is required to complete a Volunteer Application and Code of Ethics, and be Finger Printed. Please see the links below to print those out.
