HIGH SCHOOL PSR ANNOUNCEMENT!

Good Morning! We wanted to remind all of our high school parents that classes WILL begin this Sunday, August 16th. You will receive additional information on the changes that have taken place for this school year within the next few days. If you do not receive an email from us by Thursday, August 14th, please contact the Church Office.
 
Key Changes for the 2020-2021 School Year:
*Class will be from 6pm - 8:30pm
*No food will be served
*Students are asked to wear masks
 
We are blessed to have a campus large enough for the classes and students to maintain social distancing. New spaces on campus will be utilized this year including the Pavilion, Library, Activity Center and Church. Your child’s safety is of the utmost importance and we feel that by taking these new measures, we can provide a safe place for your child to grow in their love for Christ. We are looking forward to the new school year!
*For our first gathering on August 16, check-in will be in the church building. On subsequent class evenings, students will go directly to their class areas and check in with their teacher.
 

RCIA candidates please go to the Parish and Publications page for registration information

 

Child Protection
To all volunteers,

The Diocesan Office of Child and Youth Protection has revised and updated the required training for all employees and volunteers. The Diocese requires all volunteers who work directly with children and vulnerable adults to be trained in recognizing signs of abuse. Ministries included are PSR, VBS, Children's Church, Youth Group, anyone who participates in our youth retreats, and all Homebound Ministers. All current volunteers should have received communication from the office in regards to training. You must have a volunteer application on file, completed the online training course, and signed the Code of Ethics. If you are unsure if you have met all the requirements, please feel free to contact our Child Protection Coordinator, Jennifer Creel, at [email protected] or by calling the church office.
Please know that if you have already completed training on behalf of another Church or for our Catholic Schools, you will not need to train again. If you choose to not complete the training, you will be unable to continue working with our youth on campus. Please contact us with any questions! We are more than happy to help!

The Diocese of Baton Rouge is fully committed to the protection of minors and vulnerable adults, as is St. Mark Catholic Church. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Know that we are most appreciative of your time and talent as a volunteer of our church.

Please follow the instructions below to complete your online training!
