Child Safety

For the safety of the children in her care, the Diocese of Arlington, of which Our Lady of Hope Church is a part, requires all volunteers (18 and older) who will have substantial contact with children to adhere to its Policy on the Protection of Children.  This includes volunteers in groups such as Religious Education, Scouts, Youth Group, and others.

You may access the required volunteer forms on the Diocesan website. Contact Cathy Barshop, the Parish Child safety Coordinator, to request a hard copy of the forms.

Parents, you can also access the Formation in Christian Chastity and Called to Protect (High School) forms online.

Thank you for your cooperation in this important matter.  We appreciate your dedication to the children at Our Lady of Hope Parish.
