Required Safe Environment Training

This short one-hour online training teaches people how to create a secure and protected environment for everyone, especially children, by recognizing and preventing potential risks or harm.

John: “ First, I want to sincerely thank you for helping to bless me with the POP financial donation to assist me in getting my badly needed dental work completed. I have begun the process and am currently waiting on the oral surgery to heal to get fitted for my bottom denture. Poor oral health has been a large contributor to my sad diabetic health. I wanted to share some good news with you, my December 6th A1C (3-month blood glucose reading) was 16. 6….my March 12th A1C was 9.6. Normal acceptable range for A1C is under 7. Such a large drop in a 3-month period is exceptional. With POP and my sister by my side, I am achieving my goals! POP has been so wonderful to me, not only with the financial help of its community and its 2nd Saturday food blessing (I met Bill in person at your food pantry), but [also] with its ability to make me feel safe, welcome, and help me keep my faith strong during all of life’s struggles. I feel I owe so much to the POP community. I have been thinking about how I can best be of service in return and although I am not currently able to give financially, I do have a few skill sets that may be of assistance. . . if POP has a need for development of new forms, pamphlets, etc…, please feel free to ask me to help. I will be happy to create/assist with any of those needsThanks again and I look forward to many more years as a POP parishioner.”
