Circle of Grace is the Safe Environment program chosen by the Diocese of Santa Rosa. Created by the Archdiocese of Omaha and used by 17 diocese throughout the United States, it is an effective program to educate children and young people to participate in a safe environment, with a strong emphasis on the presence of God in their midst.
The goal of the Circle of Grace program is to educate and empower children and young people to actively participate in a safe environment for themselves and others.
Children/young people will understand they are created by God and live in the love of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Children/young people will be able to describe the Circle of Grace that God gives each of us.
Children/young people will be able to identify and maintain appropriate physical, emotional, spiritual and sexual boundaries.
Children/young people will be able to identify all types of boundary violations.
Children/young people will demonstrate how to take action if any boundary is threatened or violated.
