The purpose of the Safe Church Program is to ensure that parishes are places of safety and wholeness for those who come seeking the love of Christ, and to ensure that all volunteers and employees are aware of their own personal safety and are equipped to manage their own personal risk.
The Diocese of BC requires all volunteers and employees to obtain a Criminal Record Check and attend a Safe Church Workshop every five years.
St. Luke's Safe Church Liaison is Barb Prescott. Please contact her at the Safe Church e-mail or by calling the church office (250-477-6741).
