A thorough background check is required for all those employed or volunteering to work with youth or vulnerable adults as a cleric, at a parish or school, as an Archdiocesan employee or at an Archdiocesan institution. All volunteers and employees are required to complete the electronic/online background check through SELECTION.com prior to beginning their volunteer activity or employment. In addition to the electronic/online background check, employees are required to complete manual fingerprinting and submit a B4 form before beginning their employment at an Archdiocesan parish, school, or institution.

We are very grateful for our volunteers

We are blessed here at St. Gabriel Consolidated School to have an incredible group of volunteers. These individuals, through the most generous donation of their time, help our school community in a wide variety of ways: athletic coaches, scout leaders, recess monitors, cafeteria servers, room parents; the list goes on and on. We cannot thank all our volunteers enough for what you do for our school and the people who learn and work in it. We could not do all we do with your children without your assistance. We will be forever grateful.

We would like to remind everyone of the SafeParish and background check requirements that are required for all adults who plan to volunteer, in any capacity here at St. Gabriel Consolidated School or any other Archdiocesan institution. In order to help current and future volunteers, we have tried to provide a condensed version of these requirements. All volunteers who work with children in any capacity are required to complete two items: the SafeParish registration and an online background check. Volunteers are no longer required to have their fingerprints run through BCI and FBI. Please see the chart below for a snapshot of these requirements.
