2017-2018 Time and Talent Hour Guideline      

Completing the Volunteer Certification Process 

Any adult (18 years and older) wanting to volunteer with children of Most Blessed Sacrament Catholic School must complete the following requirements mandated by the Diocese of Baton Rouge.  The requirements may be accessed by entering the Diocese of Baton Rouge website at diobr.org. Once at the website, look for the Child and Youth Protection Link (bottom left/orange link).  This will take you to the certification requirements where there will be links to three of the four steps that must be completed.                                      

1.  Complete a Volunteer EAPPS Application             
Items that have an asterisk (*) must be answered in order for the application to be complete.  
References must have a complete address (house number and street name), along with contact information (area code and phone number).
You must INITIAL each of the items in the Declarations section.                                                                                                                                                                      
2.  Read and sign the Code of Ethics Acknowledgement Form

3.  Complete the Recognizing Child Abuse Online Tutorial at the Safe and Sacred Training Center Link
Once you have completed the online training (first time training), please print your certificate or email to Beverly Peterson at bpeterson@mbsbr.org.        
4.  Background Check/Fingerprinting

Please contact Beverly Peterson in the Office of Christian Formation for instructions and paperwork needed to complete the background check process. This step takes 7-10 working days for the State Police to process.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
Please contact Beverly Peterson at 225-753-5526 or bpeterson@mbsbr.org with questions or if additional information is needed.
