Safe Environment

Protecting God’s Children/Prevent and Protect

Holy Infant Catholic Church and School follow the Archdiocese of St. Louis Safe Environment Program (Protecting God’s Children/Prevent and Protect STL). The program is designed to help protect the youth, elderly, and vulnerable adults of our parish as they participate in activities within our community. This process also provides a layer of protection against the possibility of false accusations for those adults who are involved in our many ministries. If you have any questions, please call Kris Mispagel (636) 227-7440 or
