10 Finances & Administration, con t New way of organizing fundraisers: They should benefit the Parish, so the Parish can fulfill its mission. If they Parish have enough resources, what it has will be shared with the ministries. Limit the number of fundraisers New ways of handling money & resources: Follow the guidelines of the Archdiocese of San Antonio. We will combine the 10 accounts into one. Keep good internal control and supervision at every level. Reports per event and/or fundraisers will be implemented. All money must stay at the Parish s premises. Internal procedures and policies will be presented soon. 10

12 Extras Criminal background check and safe environment training will be done for all ministers. Criminal Background Check Forms Per the Archdiocese: All clergy, religious, seminarians, and employees must be screened regardless of the type of work they perform. Volunteers of the Archdiocese of San Antonio who directly minister, work or volunteer with minors and/or vulnerable persons ( Designated Volunteers ) must also be screened. Everyone will complete the Criminal Background Check Form. Safe Environment Training Per the Archdiocese: The Archdiocese of San Antonio requires all clergy, staff, candidates for ordination, and adult volunteers who minister to children/youth to complete Adult Safe Environment Training. Training is required to be renewed every three years. The Archdiocese of San Antonio is currently using Protecting God's Children developed by Virtus to educate adults on abuse prevention.
