Safe Environment

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia Office of Child and Youth Protection has put into place a Safe Environment Program for all Clergy, employees and volunteers who interact with children at least once a week on a regular basis.  The requirements are: a Criminal Backgroud Check, Child Abuse Clearance, a Protecting God’s Children Workshop (PGC) and a Mandated Reporter training session.

All volunteers at Mother of Divine Providence Parish working with children MUST provide all of the required clearances in order to work with our children.  There are no exceptions to this directive.

Please visit the Archdiocese of Philadelphia website to find out complete information about the “Protecting God’s Children Program” at or call the parish office for more information on background check and training requirements.
