Since the early 2000's, it has become clearer to the Church and to other organizations that young people and others are susceptible to the inappropriate behavior of others. Since then, the Catholic Church has led the way in creating and fostering policies that provide safe environments for worship, education, and fellowship. All employees and volunteers who minister to minors and to vulnerable adults (e.g. the home bound) are required to undergo background screening and education in safe environment training.
