Volunteers are integral to the success of St. Luke School. Each year, St. Luke parents give generously of their time and talents. With your help, all things are possible. In order to protect children, the Archdiocese of Chicago has established a program called 'Protecting God's Children'.
Archdiocese Requirements for Volunteers
Archdiocese "Protection of Youth" Policy:
To ensure the safety of our children, all volunteers participating in activities that involve students must comply with all four Archdiocese requirements as listed below. Steps 1 - 3 must only be completed one time. Step 4, the CANTS form, must be completed annually by all volunteers.
- Complete and submit the Archdiocesan Criminal Background Check (CBC).
This can be done online or in written form if you donʼt have computer access. The website for online submission is www.archchicago.org. Click here for step by step instructions. To access the paper CBC form, click here.
- Complete and return the Code of Conduct form to Glenn Wagner, St. Luke Business Manager. DO NOT send it to the Archdiocese. We will not be able to confirm your form as received unless you return it to Glenn. Click here for the form.
- Register online and attend a VIRTUS session.
Click here to find a session. Return a copy of the completion certificate to Glenn Wagner, St. Luke Business Manager. You also must read and answer the VIRTUS bulletins monthly as part of your volunteer ministry. Email notifications are sent, but you still must access the VIRTUS website to read and respond.
