We highly value the many volunteers who, through their generous giving of time, talent, and treasure, enrich our parish, and serve our children and vulnerable adults. Our policies endeavor to ensure that their personal integrity is not questioned and that all of us are taking seriously our responsibility to shelter from harm those among us.
Ministry with minors and/or vulnerable adults pertains to any ministry, program, or organization that serves youth or vulnerable adults in any manner or which functions at a time and place where minors or vulnerable adults are typically present. A listing of such ministries/programs or organizations includes, but is not limited to: communion ministry to the homebound, hospital ministry, Society of St Vincent de Paul, and transportation ministries.
In complying with diocesan policy regarding the Ethics and Integrity in Ministry program and setting a higher standard for ourselves, Emmaus Catholic Parish has established a zero tolerance policy regarding the safety of our parishioners. Without exception, all applicants for paid positions and all those in volunteer positions that involve work or service in ministries, programs, or organizations, must become and remain EIM compliant.
On August 1, 2016, the Diocese of Austin will begin using a new education program for our EIM workshop which will replace our current Basic/Refresher workshop format. The new program is a significant update of current training programs and we believe it is important for all persons that are required to be EIM compliant to participate in this program and receive this updated information. Consequently, all clergy, religious,seminarians and employees, and all volunteers serving in ministry to minors or the vulnerable, will attend this new program when they are next due for a workshop. Additionally, anyone new to the Diocese of Austin wishing to serve in ministry here must attend this new EIM workshop in order to be compliant with diocesan EIM policies. Verification of safe environment training from a previous diocese no longer serves as training in the Diocese of Austin.
To register for a workshop, please follow the links on the right column of this page. You should check your own EIM account periodically to view the status of your application and verify that your workshop date has been recorded, or contact your parish office for assistance. You will not be contacted by the EIM Office unless there is an issue with your application or background check.
Please note that you must attend the full class. Anyone who arrives more than 5 minutes late will not be given credit and will need to attend a future workshop. In respect for your fellow attendees and to receive credit, please arrive on time.
If you have questions about the process of becoming EIM-certified, or have difficulty submitting the online application, please Stephanie Gregoire, Emmaus' EIM Coordinator.
Thank you for your service to our parish and for your commitment to keep all God’s children safe.
"To create a safe environment for children is of paramount importance for the Church, and everyone in the Church is responsible for ensuring that this exists. No one can say, 'It's not my job.'"
