• For Your Safety

    As per the mandate of the US Bishops' Charter, the Archdiocese of San Francisco requires us at St. Charles to make sure that all children and teens in our parish receive formal personal safety training. We appreciate the time and effort the Archdiocese has put forth to make these courses convenient, informative, and also entertaining.


    Follow-Up: After taking the course, we ask that parents follow-up with a discussion to make sure that the youth has understood the information and to encourage parent/youth communication on personal safety issues. Please use the following discussion guide and contact us to let us know that you have followed-up so that we can record it in our files.
    Thank-you for helping ensure the safety of our Edgers!

    EDGE members are asked to take the online safety course for their age level.

    You will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course. Please print this out and submit the certificate with your registration (or bring to an EDGE night).


    -1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys is sexually abused before the age of 18.
    -Kids age 5-11 are the most at risk to suffer child abuse.

    At Catholic parishes and schools across the nation, young people are participating in special training programs designed to support parents as we teach our young people to how be safe.

    The training was mandated by the 2002 Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People issued by the United States Catholic Bishops, confirming the Bishops' deep commitment to creating a safe environment for all God's children.
