Did you know that SafeChurch is available online?
Though in-person SafeChurch training is required in almost all cases, there is the ability for those previously trained to renew their training online. This requires each parish to have an online administrator who will be in charge of maintaining that parish's SafeChurch records. If your parish does not have an online administrator and wishes to set one up, you should designate a person and then contact Diocesan SafeChurch Administrator, Aissa Hillebrand at ahillebrand @dioceseli.org or 516-240-4800 Ext. 150.
