Returning Volunteers needing to renew:

All Christ the King School parents must attend an in person training.

Previously cleared volunteers who are not involved in the school but the children’s ministries of St. Anne’s Society may renew by watching the online video options below.  Be sure to watch the entire video and take the online quiz at the end.  This should update your status automatically within the system.  Online retraining may be found on the Christ the King Church website ( on the Safe Environment page.

There are two online retraining options: Domestic Violence and Keeping the Promises Alive  

a. Select “Domestic Violence” and watch the 4 minute video, then select “retraining”. You will read a short lesson. Print off the quiz, answer the questions, and send the quiz to the Safe Environment office.

b. If you completed the Domestic Violence Awareness training last year, then please go to and select Safe Environment and then select Sign Up for Safe Environment Classes.

c. You will be directed to the diocese’s web site.  Proceed to “My Obligations”. After you log in and verify your current information go to “View All Online Classes” and choose the “Keeping the Promise Alive” video. You must watch the entire video and wait for the post test to come up (this could take 20-30 seconds). You will be notified of your successful completion.

Please keep in mind that these requirements are set by the Diocese of Dallas and may change.
