Attention All OLOJ Volunteers

Safe Environment

The Diocese of Phoenix requires that all volunteers in a parish complete the Safe Environment Training program.

There are two types of SET classes:

Foundation Class: This is the first SET class required for all volunteers and is offered only in a classroom format. Volunteers who serve minors and/or vulnerable adults must take the Foundation Class prior to service. All other volunteers should complete the class within one month of beginning their volunteer service. For a list of Foundation Class dates offered at various locations around the Valley, please go to:

Renewal Class: All volunteers who have completed their one-time Foundation Class are required to take an online Renewal Class annually between Jul 1 and Dec 31. The Renewal Class can be found at: Click the Online Renewal tab. After watching the Renewal video of your choice through the credits, you will receive a message on your screen followed by an email confirming your completion of the Renewal Class. (The newest video is “Keeping the Promise Alive” and is 32 minutes long.) Please forward your confirmation email to your ministry leader. If you do not currently belong to a ministry, please forward your confirmation email to

Note: All new volunteers must complete a Volunteer Application form in addition to SET training. An interview and three references are requirements of the application process.
