The safety of the children, staff and visitors to Mary Immaculate are of utmost importance. To that end, we screen volunteers and adhere to all requirements of the Diocese of Dallas Safe Environment Program.


All volunteers are required to:

  1. Complete and return a Diocese Screening form. It can either be filled out online at Online Diocese Screening Form or fill out a blank form from the school office. Either form can be sent into the school office.

  2. Attend the Family of Faith Training Class to view the 'Family of Faith' video featuring Bishop Farrell. Please contact the safe environment contact above for dates/times.

  3. Read two documents: Sign and return Safe Environment Program Booklet Acknowledgement Form (also available as the last page on the Diocese of Dallas Safe Environment Program for Diocesan Entities document).


Volunteers who have completed the initial training above must annually update their training by clicking [here] and completing the diocesan instructions. Upon completion of your re-certification online, please print or email a copy of your verification page to the Safe Environment contact listed above.

If a person fails to meet this requirement, they will become immediately ineligible to continue to serve. If they wish to "reinstate" their eligibility, they will be required not only to update their training but also meet any other requirements of the screening process that are effective currently. This can mean further paperwork for the person to complete and may delay a person's return to eligibility.
