Since October 1, 2003, the Diocese of Gaylord requires all diocesan, parish and school employees (clergy, religious, and lay) to have a criminal history background check as part of the employment process. In addition, all school employees and volunteers, regardless of position, who will have regular contact with minors eight (8) or more hours each month must have a fingerprint criminal background check. All parish volunteers, who will have regular contact with minors eight (8) or more hours each month, must have a criminal history background check processed prior to volunteering.
Declining a background check will result in loss of position.
Criminal history background checks will be updated every five (5) years.
