St. Louis Safe Environment Program (Protecting God's Children)
Saint Ambrose Catholic Church and School follow the requirements of the Archdiocese of St. Louis Safe Environment Program (Protecting God's Children). The program is designed to help protect the youth, elderly and vulnerable adults of our parish as they participate in activities within our community. All volunteers and employees who work with children at Saint Ambrose must be in full compliance with the program.
Prevent & Protect - Compliance
The Archdiocese of St. Louis has developed a new system for safe environment compliance called Prevent and Protect STL. Everyone ministering to minors and vulnerable adults in the Archdiocese are required and asked to register in the new system. If you have any questions or want to register, please contact the School Office at 314-772-1437.
The Office of Child and Youth Protection serves persons who bring forward allegations of sexual abuse by a member of the clergy or by lay employees and volunteers of the Archdiocese of Saint Louis. In addition the Office of Child and Youth Protection oversee and ensure compliance with policies and procedures created to receive and investigate reports of abuse as required by the Holy See, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and the Archdiocese of Saint Louis. In addition the Office of Child and Youth Protection is responsible for the activities and concerns brought before the Archdiocesan Child Safety Committee as well as the Archdiocesan Review Board. Victims of sexual abuse, in addition to contacting civil authorities, are asked to come forward in order to receive pastoral assistance. Reports of abuse may be made to any Pastor or to:
