Safe Environment


The Diocese of Dallas has implemented a new training program offered by Ministry Safe. It is an online training module. Thankfully, the diocese realized that we still needed in person training. Therefore, I will be offering a renewal training class for those persons who can ONLY take the class in person. This person may not be tech savvy or lacks the equipment or internet access required to complete an online course. Reminder, we are still in a pandemic and I would really recommend that you take online if you are not comfortable with in person or you are at risk or not feeling well.

If you are planning to attend in person training, you are required to wear a mask and practice social distancing. Please call me and reserve your spot before attending class. Class will take place Saturday October 3, 2020 at 12pm in English.

Please contact director of Safe Environment:
Silvia Puente at spuente@cathedralguadalupe.org or 469 329-6238.
