Diocese of Houma-thibodaux

St. Francis de Sales Cathedral

The Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux has implemented new changes in the Safe Environment Training procedures.  We are now only required to train once every three (3) years, rather than every year.  This training will be done online, and a back ground check will likewise be done every three years online when we train.  For those who have already done the initial training, you are eligible to go online and train.  To access the website, go to http://safeandsacred-htdiocese.org  All clergy, staff, and volunteers who work with youth are required to do this training. 

                                                For those who are new to the training, call the Cathedral office to obtain a packet prior to training.  

                                                                                  For detailed instructions for online training, click below.

In catechesis "Christ, the Incarnate Word and Son of God, ... is taught--everything else is taught with reference to him--and it is Christ alone who teaches--anyone else teaches to the extent that he Christ's spokesman, enabling Christ to teach with his lips... Every catechist should be able to apply to himself the mysterious words of Jesus: 'My teaching is not mine, but his who sent me.'"
