Safe Environment

As part of its efforts to protect minors and the vulnerable, the Diocese of Owensboro requires Safe Environment compliance on a five-year cycle for clergy, religious, employees, and all volunteers working with minors. The diocese uses CMG Connect, developed by Catholic Mutual Group, to coordinate its compliance requirements.

Who must be in compliance?

  1. Clergy and religious serving the Diocese of Owensboro
  2. All employees serving the diocese, parish, or diocesan school
  3. Volunteers supervising minors
