In an effort to maintain a happy and safe environment for everyone, Blessed Sacrament Parish follows all of the protocols put forth by the Diocese of Norwich. 

1. Every new volunteer must have all Safe Environment paperwork and training completed before the start of classes in September. This will include proof of identification and a screening process. Our Faith Formation staff will guide you through the entire process. Everything takes about 1 hour or less to complete. This may be done on your own or in our office. 

2. Returning volunteers may be asked to renew or update their paperwork and or training.

3.  Mandated Reporter training is also asked of our volunteers every two years.

Guidelines and requirements are subject to change and are all mandated by the Diocese of Norwich. For more information on Safe Environments please see this page of our website.

Currently we have several openings for teachers and aides and other volunteers. Please note we are required to have at least 2 adults in each classroom setting.
