Protecting God's Children
Protecting God's Children is the new Safe Environment training which is required for all volunteers at St. Thomas Aquinas, regardless of volunteer position. The Diocese of Fort Worth has asked that all volunteers go through this training so that every volunteer is aware of the signs of possible abuse. The training takes approximately 3 hours and is held at St. Thomas Aquinas.
