Children's Race

The Marianist Family Retreat Center is committed to keeping children and the vulnerable safe while in our care.
 

All children have the right to be safe and protected from harm in any and all environments – home, school, religious institutions, neighborhoods, and communities. The Marianist Family Retreat Center and The Diocese of Camden embrace this right to safety and are dedicated to promoting and ensuring the protection of all children.

“Since 1999 The Marianist Family Retreat Center has instituted written Child & Youth Protection policies.”

Child Protection Policies

“See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father." - Matthew 18:10

Permanent Staff


All members of our permanent staff are in compliance with the policies and training requirements of The Diocese of Camden.  The Diocese of Camden uses the Protecting God's Children for Adults training provided by VIRTUS. This training is conducted by VIRTUS certified facilitators on the prevention of child sexual abuse. The training makes participants aware of the signs of child sexual abuse, the methods and means by which offenders commit abuse, and five easy steps one can use to prevent child sexual abuse. 

 

Additionally, each member of our permanent staff has been fingerprinted and subject to a nation-wide criminal history background check.
