St. Thomas More School thanks all our families who donate their time and talents to our school. We truly could not do what we do

without your help. Your time is valuable, and we appreciate your choice to share it with us. We will always do our best to pair you with your child and their class, but please consider volunteering for the times where we struggle to find volunteers as it can be a great

benefit for other students. For more information about volunteering, or questions, please contact STM School Event and Volunteer Coordinator, Ms. Janice Gough at

St. Thomas More School and Parish Volunteer Policy and Protocol

The United States Conference of Bishops’ Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People mandates that every Diocese implement Safe Environment programs for all children, parents and adults. The principal purpose of this Charter is to ensure a safe environment for the children of each diocese. In the Diocese of Allentown, a number of steps have been taken in order to implement these guidelines pertaining to reconciliation, healing, accountability, and prevention of future acts of abuse.


Therefore, in light of these steps, all adult volunteers (18 and older) at St. Thomas More School and Parish who come into contact with children, regardless of the number of hours, are MANDATED to have the following eight requirements completed PRIOR to volunteering.
