Submit Volunteer Clearances

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with St. Stanislaus Parish!
As volunteers of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, YOU are the first line of defense in the Archdiocese’s commitment to keep the children entrusted to our care safe from abuse.  Directions for obtaining clearances may be downloaded via the link below. Please feel free to contact the Safe Environment Coordinator at should you have any questions about this process.

Compliance Guidelines

Guidelines are reflective of the 2015 changes to Pennsylvania Child Protective Services Law and Archdiocesan Policy for the Protection of Children and Young People effective July 1, 2015.

Archdiocesan policy requires all volunteers with any possible contact with minors to obtain clearances, as required by Pennsylvania law.  Archdiocesan compliance guidelines state that volunteers 18 years of age or older should submit clearances prior to the commencement of employment or volunteer service with no exceptions. Please visit for more information.
