Ministry to the Sick Certification Training

Ministers of Holy Communion for the Sick/Vulnerable Adults

Safe Environment compliance in the Diocese of Salt Lake City is a prerequisite to ministering to the sick or homebound (vulnerable adults). The training provides a basic awareness of what to look for if there is reason to believe the person/vulnerable adult is being abused.

The training is a brief overview of the following:

  • Definition of Vulnerable Adult
  • Mental Capacity Assessment
  • What is Adult Abuse
  • Types of Abuse
  • Reporting Abuse and Sharing of Information

The training requires a background screening; in accordance with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). All diocesan personnel and volunteers must comply with diocesan policies and with applicable state and local laws.
