Bishop Michael Olson established and fortified safe environment programs that emphasize our commitment to creating and sustaining a secure and supportive space for everyone who participates in the worship, fellowship, and activities of our parish and school communities in the Diocese of Fort Worth.

Through our programs, we mandate and verify that all clergy, employees, and volunteers undergo safe environment training, background checks, and additional screening before they serve in any ministry.

These ongoing efforts, championed and endorsed by Bishop Olson, enable us to safeguard the vulnerable and foster a culture of safety and respect for all.
