Safe Church Statement

All clergy, employees, and volunteers at St. Luke’s Church are required to undergo Safe Church Training through the Episcopal Diocese of Rhode Island. Safe Church Training is a required certification program for clergy, lay ministers, employees, vestry members, those who volunteer in programs for children and youth, and those who visit church members in their homes or assisted living facilities. It is required for church members with key access to the church. This training is also recommended for all lay people in leadership positions and leaders from outside groups who use the church facility for their programs. Safe Church training is grounded in our call to seek and serve Christ in all persons and to respect the dignity of every human being. The clergy and vestries of each individual church are responsible for oversight of their parishioners and staff who need to take the training. Contact The Rev. Timothy T. Rich, Rector, or Christina Imondi, Parish Administrator, regarding any questions about training.
