Become a mandatory reporter

New Year’s Resolution:
Become a mandatory reporter
Published on 1/7/2019
Even if the legal requirements for mandatory reporting
may not cover your specific position, as Catholics, we
are called to protect the vulnerable at all times, and
that may mean reporting on inappropriate behavior
that puts a child at risk. The only way we can prevent
abuse is to learn the signs and take ownership for the
safety of children in our communities. To read more
from the VIRTUS® article “Make a New Year’s Resolution to Become a Mandatory Reporter.”


RICA invites you to their annual dinner-dance for Valentine’s day,

Augustine Institute Kiosk

Now open!
Augustine Institute Kiosk
The kiosk has several forms of
media for each of us to grow in our Catholic
faith and to be able to share our faith with
others. Our kiosk includes lighthouse talks
which are audio presentations on CDs, books,
and booklets. The kiosk will be permanently
in the vestibule so that resources are always
available for you to learn our faith better and
evangelize by sharing with others.
