Mandated Reporter Training sessions

It appears that, as of July 1, 2014, there will be a revision to the Official Archdiocese of Chicago Policy Book. We await final word on this revision but there is little reason to think that it will not be implemented. This revision will cause the Office of the Diaconate to be unable to issue letters of good standing to those who have not completed mandated reporter training.

 

The Diaconate Office, working with the Office for the Protection of Children and Youth, will host "live" workshops in English and Spanish and will be held at the Diaconate Office.

 

These sessions are only for those who have not yet undergone the training. We will send you a letter if it appears you haven't done the training. There is no need to call until you get a letter from us and no need to call if you have already done the training.

 

English sessions:
 

10 a.m. Saturday, May 10.

7 p.m. Thursday, May 15 at 7 PM.
Pre-registration is necessary.

 

Spanish sessions:

 

7 p.m. Wednesday, May 28
7 p.m. Tuesday, June 17
Pre-registration is necessary.

 

Sessions will be held in Fearon Hall at St. Bernadine Parish, 7246 W. Harrison St., Forest Park.

 

Online training in English is also available (the State of Illinois does not have this available online in Spanish). Cut and paste the following link to your browser for information:
