Child and Youth Protection Policy Requirements for Volunteers (STAND)

All parishioners are encouraged to complete the STAND process so that they are ready to volunteer when the need arises!

Thank you for volunteering! 

The Archdiocese of Baltimore requires that all volunteers who have substantial contact with minors complete STAND Child Protection Training.  All the information you will need to start the process is detailed on this link.

Thank you for your service to our parish and especially for your commitment to the children and youth of St. Francis of Assisi!

We must have this completed at least 2 weeks before you begin volunteering, so that we can process the screenings and references.   Please call (410) 792-0470 if you have any questions.
