St. Paul's Cathedral

Safe Church

At St. Paul’s we strive to ensure that each person who walks through our doors is treated with kindness and respect, and we want everyone to know that they and their family are entering a safe place.

In keeping with the Diocese of Huron’s Safe Church Policy, all St. Paul’s clergy and staff, as well as all volunteers working in Children & Youth Ministries, have undergone police screening.  Clergy, staff, and many parishioners have first aid certification, as well.

Training is being offered on an annual basis to ensure that topics such as sexual misconduct, bullying, abuse (domestic, child and elder), and mental health are discussed openly.  These sessions are to remind clergy, staff and volunteers of appropriate behaviour, and also serve to equip them with tools to ensure that they can go about their work in safety.
