Who needs fingerprinting?
Parish volunteers are required by the Diocese of Orlando to have a background check clearance through the Diocese of Orlando every five years and to have successfully completed the Safe Environment Training prior to serving. This is a requirement by the Orlando diocese of all who participate in church sponsored ministries and programs. It is meant for the protection of children and vulnerable adults:
All persons age 15 or older engaged in work or volunteer activities involving Vulnerable Populations must be fingerprinted.
What needs to be done:
The explicit steps are given below. Here is an overview:
- Watch the 20 minute training Video.”Protecting Our Youth”.
- Take a short on-line quiz afterwards. If you fail the quiz, you may re-watch the video and take it again. Click here to register for video and quiz.

The Diocese of Orlando will inform the Church or School of your clearance after the fingerprint/background screening and the video & test are completed and processed. Background checks are good for 5 years.
If you have already gone through this screening process with the Diocese Of Orlando for St. St. Peters Parish within the last 5 years, you can skip this process. If so, please just check with the parish office to make sure they have your background check on record. Thank you!
