A service of love

There are many ways to get involved with Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish in her sacrificial service and ministry to the community. It is only through prayer and hard work (Ora et Labora) that any Christian apostolate can succeed.

Any volunteers who are reasonably expected to come into contact with children are asked to complete the following forms. Links to the forms are provided to the right.

Criminal Background Check: Complete and sign the Diocese of Allentown Lay Employee/Volunteer Background Check Authorization form. There is an $11.35 fee. (Cash or check made payable to Sacred Heart) Note: The blanks for “where employed/volunteering” and “position” refer to your volunteer position at Sacred Heart, not your regular job.

Code of Conduct: Read and sign the Diocese of Allentown Code of Conduct.

Sexual Abuse Policy: Read and sign the Diocese of Allentown Sexual Abuse Policy (Policy Regarding the Alleged Sexual Abuse of Minors).

Protecting God’s Children Workshop: It is also required that all volunteers complete the Protecting God’s Children Workshop. Times and locations of this workshop can be found on the Diocese of Allentown website. After attending, bring in a copy of the certificate of attendance to be kept on file.

If you have any questions please contact our parish Safe Environment Coordinator, Mrs. Kris Porter, at 610-837-7841 or email her at dre@sacredheartbath.org.
