Posted June 14, 2018 By Mary Pettit

Saturday, September 22, 2018, from 9 am – 3 pm we will be hosting another Safe Sitter class. 

Designed to prepare students in grades 6-8 to be safe when they’re home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting.

The instructor-led class is filled with fun games and role-playing exercises. Students even get to use manikins to practice rescue skills like choking rescue and CPR!


Students learn how to prevent unsafe situations and what to do when faced with dangers such as power failures or weather emergencies.


Learning skills such as choking rescue and CPR is often students’ favorite part of the class. Students also learn a system to help them assess and respond to injuries and illnesses.


The ability to screen jobs, discuss fees, and greet employers will set students up for success now and in the future. Students practice these skills through various role plays.


Students learn tips to manage behavior that will help them stay in control of themselves and the children in their care. Students also learn the ages and stages of child development, as well as practice diapering.

This course also involves learning CPR.  Student-Registration-Form for upcoming Safe Sitter class.  Letter-to-Parents for Safe Sitter class.

Thirsty Thursday EVERY Thursday this Summer           

Every Thursday evening this summer, starting at 6:00 pm at Catholic Youth Ministries, we will meet-up for Thirsty Thursday.  Meet for dinner first and then we will take an amazing look at the Catholic Faith as we have not seen it before.  Do you have questions about the 2,000-year-old traditions?  Is your faith, your worldview?  Maybe you’ve wondered if it is more a way of life?  A relationship?  A mystery?  Essentials you may have questions about are all on the table this summer.

Hosted by Philip Weise, Director of Catholic Youth Ministries; College and Young Adult Lead.

safe and sacred buttonThe Archdiocese of Indianapolis has initiated a convenient new online training program for adults on protecting children from harm. The training builds awareness of how to recognize and report physical abuse, emotional abuse, neglect, and child sexual abuse. Safe and Sacred replaces the Virtus program and offers broader content and easier access to training.

The training is available in English and Spanish 24 hours per day, 7 days per week at www.safeandsacred-archindy.org it takes about 45 minutes to complete and can be done in parts. As of August 1, 2013, all new clergy, employees, and volunteers who have contact with children must complete the Safe and Sacred program before beginning ministry, work, or volunteer service. Current clergy, employees, and volunteers will re-certify starting in January 2014.
