Safe Environment

The Archdiocese of San Antonio is committed to the protection of children, youth and vulnerable adults.

Ministry Leaders

It is your responsibility as Ministry and Organization Leaders to ensure that all your volunteers are in compliance with Safe Environment Procedures. Verification is ONLY conducted by the parish office. Please provide our parish office a list of your volunteers before September 15, 2017 for verification purposes.  Also remember to share updated lists with us as you recruit new volunteers. Send your lists to Pat Pickett via email: ppickett@olghelotes.org. If you have questions, please call (210) 695-8791 to speak with either Pat Pickett (ext. 112) or Maryanne Burns (ext. 106). We are here to assist you!
