Safe Environment

In order to ensure that children, young people, and vulnerable individuals are in the safest and most secure setting possible, we adhere to the Safe Environment policies and procedures of the Archdiocese of Atlanta.

All adult volunteers (18 years old or older) working with children, youth, and/or vulnerable individuals must complete the Safe Environment training (VIRTUS) and undergo a background screening before they start volunteering. For more details on our policies, procedures and training, call the Parish Office at 706-548-6332 or see the following important links:
