In accord with the Safe Environment policies of the Archdiocese of St. Louis, Our Lady Queen of Peace participates in the Protecting God's Children program.  This program is designed to help protect the youth, elderly, and vulnerable adults of our parish as they participate in activities within our community.  This process also provides a layer of protection against the possibility of false accusations for those adults who are involved in our many ministries that serve youth and/or vulnerable adults.  Participation in ministries and activities involving youth, the elderly and other vulnerable persons include, but are not limited to, tutors, classroom volunteers, PSR teachers, coaches, scout leaders, youth group leaders and chaperones, drivers for the elderly or shut-ins, visitors and communion call ministers for the sick and elderly confined to hospitals, nursing homes, or the homebound, and the like.

For more information about the expected ethical conduct of employees and volunteers working with minor children, the elderly and other vulnerable persons, please see the Code of Ethical Conduct published by the Archdiocese of St. Louis.
