Those individuals are:
- All clergy;
- All members of religious orders;
- All parish and diocesan employees, including those who have no contact with children, young people, or vulnerable adults;
- All adult volunteers whose ministry or role places them in regular contact with children, young people, or vulnerable adults;

***Coaches and substitute teachers are required to complete the credentialing process before the assumption of duties.
