For all Volunteers- Please Read
The Archdiocese of St. Louis has developed a new system for safe environment compliance called Prevent and Protect STL. Everyone ministering to minors and vulnerable adults (clergy, employees and volunteers) in the Archdiocese are required and asked to register in the new system before December 31, 2020.  This includes those new to service and those who are currently in service. For those who have already attended a Protecting God’s Children workshop, your previous training date will transfer to this new system.  In addition to attending a live Protecting God’s Children workshop, all clergy, volunteers, and employees will register for an updated background screening, view two new online training modules on abuse reporting and the Cod of Ethical Conduct, and agree to the updated Code of Ethical Conduct.  Please go to to register and contact your parish Child Safety Coordinator with any questions or for further assistance.

  • Attend a Protecting God’s Children Workshop. This workshop is offered frequently at various places and times throughout the Archdiocese. Please refer to the Protecting God’s Children link on the home page of the archdiocesan website for the latest schedule of dates, times of places where the workshop is offered. The Archdiocese will notify our parish that you have completed the class.

For inquiries about Our Lady of the Pillar compliance, please contact Susy Masterson (our Child Safety Coordinator) at the Parish Office, 314-993-2280 or
