St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic School offers many opportunities for parents to volunteer. Parents can participate on field trips, class activities, as guest speakers, and in many other activities. We invite you to become active participants in your child’s education.
The Archdiocese of Miami is committed to providing safe environments for those who need protection the most, our children and our vulnerable adults. Under the direction of Archbishop Wenski, we are keeping that promise. All clergy, religious, employees and adult volunteers (e.g., liturgical ministers, youth group leaders, school volunteers, coaches etc.) in the parishes, schools and other entities of the Archdiocese of Miami must fulfill the following safe environment requirements:
1. Successfully pass a national criminal background screening.
2. Participate in the “Virtus” training program, accessible at www.virtus.org.
3. Sign a Code of Conduct.
These steps are tangible signs of the Archdiocese of Miami’s continuing efforts to ensure a safe environment for children and vulnerable adults in our parishes, schools and other facilities. This work by all the Roman Catholic dioceses of our country represents the largest child sexual abuse prevention effort in the history of the United States.
