How To Prepare For Responsible Ministry
In Your Parish

Responsible Ministry

A Protection Plan for Children, Youth, Vulnerable Adults and Ministry Personnel of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.

This protocol and its guidelines are to help us fulfill our responsibilities to provide as safe and nurturing environment as possible for children, youth and vulnerable adults. In partnership with parents and caregivers, we seek to provide quality care and instruction and, in this way, promote spiritual growth at every age level.

For new members of our teams, for responsible ministry in our parishes, an Orientation Video must be viewed along with the necessary forms to be fully prepared for High Risk Ministries. A refresher orientation must be completed yearly to keep members up to date on responsible ministry.

Please see your parish for all appendices, call Andrea Langlois at 306-922-4747 ext. 234 or email: responsibleministry@padiocese.ca 

If viewing either video in a group setting all that is required at the Diocese office is an attendance sheet.  

If viewing either video on your own a completed copy of the questionnaire must be sent into the RC Diocese of Prince Albert – Responsible Ministry.
