Protocol For Responsible Parish Ministry

The purpose of the Archdiocese of Regina Protocol For Responsible Parish Ministry is to ensure that parishioners, employees, volunteers and the community at large in the Archdiocese of Regina are protected respecting civil, canonical and Archdiocesan standards of conduct by everyone providing a service or program on behalf of the Archdiocese of Regina.

All parishes and offices of the Archdiocese of Regina are, through the diligent application of this Protocol, expected to obtain the following four objectives:

  • To safeguard the sanctity, dignity and security of all persons who serve and are served through ministry in the Archdiocese of Regina.  Particular attention is necessary for children and vulnerable adults.

  • To ensure the integrity, safety and reputation of our volunteers.

  • To safeguard the spiritual and physical integrity of those who are ministered to.

  • To ensure that we fulfill our obligations to the faith community and to the public at large. 

All volunteers in Holy Trinity Parish must fill out Adult/Youth Volunteer Information Forms, are provided the applicable Ministry and Volunteer Job Descriptions, and must abide by the General Guidelines For Parish Volunteers.  Those ministries identified as "High Security", ie. ministry with vulnerable persons, or ministries involving the financial/administrative function of the parish are further required to go through a police security criminal record check.  When volunteering for any ministry the pertinent information and requirements will be fully explained.    We thank and encourage all of our volunteers and truly appreciate your commitment in making our parish a safe and dignified portion of the Kingdom of God!
