Safe Environment

Approved safe environment training shall be required for all personnel of the Archdiocese (i.e. priests, deacons, paid staff and volunteers) who have regular contact with children and young people at the time they enter service in the name of the Church and at intervals thereafter of no more than 5 years. This training is currently known as Circle of Care Training. 

Children and young people, in the age groups K-12th, are also prepared in age-appropriate and sequential format in Catholic schools, religious education, youth ministry, and other programs organized under the responsibility of the Archdiocese. The Archbishop has mandated that all children and young people participate in the approved safe environment Circle of Grace training each year.

For information concerning initial safe environment training or to check on your safe environment certification contact: Elizabeth Tomaso, Religious Education Director, at St. Mary's Rectory 402-291-1350 or email her at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Our philosophy of education is to offer a five-day program to assist families in teaching those truths, skills, and ideals, which are necessary for Christian living. We believe that education must develop the faculties and abilities of the whole child: spiritually, intellectually, physically, and emotionally.
