What is CMG connect?
Catholic Mutual Group has served as a major insurer to the Catholic Church for over 125 years. CMG’s unparalleled experience working with over 20,000 locations has given them a clear historical advantage of risk management trends and intervention. Out of their commitment to the Church’s mission Catholic Mutual Group has developed a new program interfaced through CMG connect.
CMG connect is a new web-base platform that will assist us to ensure that all employees and volunteers who are in a position of trust with children and vulnerable adults within our schools and parishes are trained to recognize behavior patterns of potential abusers and provide pro-active measures for preventing abuse in any context.
"Safe Haven-It’s Up to You” is a three part video which provides vignettes of real-life situations to educate the viewer about methods of grooming, desensitization, bullying and neglect, all of which can lead to abuse. Each part of the video is immediately followed by a brief questionnaire to further develop understanding.
In addition to the “Safe Haven-It’s Up to You” video, CMG connect will provide a streamlined screening process for employees and volunteers by use of a secure on-line background check and electronic signatures on our diocesan Code of Conduct documents.
Regular Volunteer/Participant Requirements:
In the volunteer application form there is a signature required to perform a background check inquiry. A folder will be kept on each regular volunteer that will include their volunteer application with signatures, code of conduct, technology code of conduct, background check and Virtus certificate.
The Cathedral of Christ the King is part of the Diocese of Lexington and abides by all aspects of diocesan policy in this regard (CLICK HERE for further details).
