Safe Environment

The Catholic Diocese of Sioux Falls is committed to providing healthy and holy environments for the children of our diocese to grow in their faith. As part of this commitment, we have created educational programs and policies for the employees and volunteers who work in our parishes, schools and institutions. These programs and policies are required of all clergy, school personnel, parish employees and of all volunteers who work with children or vulnerable adults.
