We need LOTS of safe-environment-compliant adults to help host NCYC for the thousands of youth and adults who will participate from around the country.
All volunteers must comply with their home diocese’s safe environment policies, including up-to-date training and a third-party background check. If you minister or volunteer in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, we can verify your status directly through the Safe Parish system. If you are cleared for ministry with young people in another diocese, your parish, school, or diocesan safe environment coordinator must verify your compliance by completing this form and emailing it to [email protected]. Verification forms are due no later than November 1. The verification does not constitute volunteer registration.
If you are a priest who wishes to provide sacramental ministry at NCYC (concelebrate Mass, hear confessions) or a deacon who wishes to vest and assist at Mass, you must submit a Letter of Suitability from your bishop or religious superior. The letter must reference your suitability for ministry and your completion of safe environment training and background check status.
Address your letter to:
Reverend Monsignor William StumpfVicar GeneralAttn: Office of ClergyArchdiocese of Indianapolis1400 N. Meridian StreetIndianapolis, IN 46202
Email the letter to [email protected] with a courtesy copy (cc) to [email protected].
