Sign up for training

The Catholic Mutual Platform is undergoing some revisions and will be unavailable from December 11 through December 13. It should be up and running by December 14. Sorry for any inconvenience.


The Archdiocese of Omaha is committed to ensuring that all children can learn with smiles and open hearts from caring leaders in each one of our parishes, schools, and activities.

The Safe Environment program is our archdiocesan response to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishop’s Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People. The Archdiocese of Omaha is actively committed to this cause through the volunteers, staff, priests, and parents who work together to furnish a comfortable place of growth and development for our youth.

The Safe Environment program consists of several parts:

  • Policy Development. Specific policies covering relationships, communications, and the obligations of archdiocesan clergy, employees, and qualifying volunteers.
  • Victim Assistance Coordination. Ensures that victims of abuse receive thorough and caring assistance in a safe environment where they can feel comfortable.
  • Training and Certification. For archdiocesan clergy, employees, and qualifying volunteers.
  • A Review Board. To assist the Archbishop in his responsibilities for the protection of youth.
  • Circle of Grace Education Programs. The Circle of Grace education concept teaches young people that God gives us all our own Circle of Grace. Developed by the Archdiocese of Omaha, this program has been adopted by over 40 dioceses and is used in hundreds of schools nationwide.
