Thank you for volunteering for the Fall Festival.
There are new rules this year for volunteers of the festival so please read the below carefully:
The Diocese and the Parish are requiring the all FF volunteers, age 15 yrs. and older, regardless of your shift or duties, to pass a Background Check.
The mission of Safe Environment Training and Fingerprinting is to prevent abuse of children and vulnerable persons through education and awareness. The Diocese of Orlando is committed to protecting all children and vulnerable persons.
It is easy to do and does not require much time. However, getting the results back prior to the start of the festival can take a few weeks so it is important to start the process now.
There are three easy steps:
- Go on line to Go to https://www.orlandodiocese.org and watch a video.
- Take a quick online quiz to show you understand.
- Make an appointment online and go to one of the many convenient Finger Printing centers to have your fingerprints taken. The fingerprinting takes less than 5 minutes.
Your Background check is valid for 5 years, so you won’t be required to take another 2024.
The results are confidential and only Fr. John and the Julie, the parish Director of Operations will see the results.
There is a cost for the fingerprinting and the processing that is contracted by the Diocese through an agency. The cost is $44.00. This is not reimbursable but will cover you for 5 years of volunteering. That’s about $10.00 a year.
If you have already had your BRC completed through Holy Family School, Holy Family parish or through the Dioceses you are good to go.
If your employer or other agency has done a BRC on you unfortunately the parish won’t accept that as it can’t be verified. You must get checked through the Diocese process.
Once you start the process, you can sign up for shifts and I will email you when we get the confirmation back from the office.
If you have questions about the BRC, please call the parish office. I am a volunteer just like you and have no influence on this and cannot make exceptions.
If you have questions about the shifts, duties, etc., you can email me through this site.
Thank you all. We absolutely cannot have the Festival without our volunteers, and I look forward to seeing our old friends and our new comers.
