 Safe Environment Education 

Out of concern for all God’s people and in response to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People, we have incorporated into our curriculum for Pre-K thru 8th graders a program for the safe environment education of children and young people supported by Most Rev. Robert W. Finn, Bishop, Diocese of Kansas City~St. Joseph.

This program is called Circle of Grace. It is meant to supplement and be integrated into the excellent programs and curricula for the formation of children and young people in our schools and religious education programs. Circle of Grace aims to equip our children and young people by arming them with essential knowledge and skills grounded in the richness of our faith. This program helps children and young people to understand their own (and other’s) dignity in mind, body, and spirit.
