The archdiocese uses fingerprinting as its core
method of checking a person's background, which includes a check of criminal history. All persons, whether paid or volunteer, who have regular
contact with minors or vulnerable adults are fingerprinted and agree that the
archdiocese or other specified person will receive any subsequent arrest
notifications. The details of the fingerprinting requirement are listed in the
following sections and vary depending on one’s role. Accordingly the policies
must be reviewed and implemented with care and attention to the current role of
the individual being fingerprinted.
