Safe Environment Program

St. Peter Catholic Church and School follow the Archdiocese of St. Louis Safe Environment Program (Protecting God’s Children). The program is designed to help protect the youth of our parish as they participate in activities within our community. This process also provides a layer of protection against the possibility of false accusations for those adults and minors who are involved in our many ministries. If you have any questions, please call Sally Brockman 636-946-6641 ext. 202 or email sbrockman@stpstc.org
