Protecting God's Children

As part of our efforts to keep all our children free from abuse, the Archdiocese of Boston requires that all volunteers complete Protecting God’s Children training. Parents who may volunteer in the school also need to complete this training. The training focuses on how to create a Safe Environment for kids, how to recognize risks and indicators of abuse, and what to do if you have concerns. 


To register for a training, please go to Click on “First Time Registrant” then complete the registration, selecting “Boston Archdiocese MA” as the location when asked at the beginning of the process. Once you have completed your registration you will be directed to a list of all of the upcoming trainings in the Archdiocese. You can select any training you choose unless it is specified as closed. Please note that some trainings are in languages other than English. When that is the case it will be noted. 


Please note that this training is for adults only. Children are NOT allowed to attend regardless of age.
