Criminal Background Checks

In the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, all diocesan priests, deacons, and candidates for ordination will undergo a criminal background evaluation according to diocesan policy and procedure.  All employees, regardless of their level of contact with children, will undergo criminal background evaluations prior to employment.  All volunteers, who will have regular contact with children and young people as part of their volunteer duties, will undergo criminal background evaluations  before they begin their responsibilities.  The employee's or volunteer's immediate supervisor is to ensure this requirement is fulfilled.  Per Indiana state law, all new school employees must undergo an expanded criminal history search.  The diocese contracts with a professional background screening company to complete its criminal history searches.




Before completing any of the documents below,
