Safe Environment:

If you are 18 or older and want to serve as Team on a SEARCH, the Diocese of Fargo requires a few things to be done prior to being allowed to attend the SEARCH weekend.

The Background Check: If you already have had this completed within the last 5 years by the diocese, SEARCH needs a copy of the completed study (verification) for our files. Please have this emailed (you can usually contact the parish you did it with and they will email it to SEARCH)    Background Check Form

The Code of Conduct: This is a one-time requirement in this Diocese unless something changes in it, then you will be notified you have to read it again. Read at your leisure. Please sign the last page that states you have read the Code of Conduct. SEARCH only needs the signature page returned.

Fill out and sign both papers. You can mail them, email them (by scanning them into a document or taking a photo of them) or drop them off (see contact info). SEARCH needs these completed two weeks prior to the weekend.

Circle of Care Video: This is a one-time requirement in this Diocese unless something changes in the video. You will then be notified that you will have to watch it again. If you have done this previously, SEARCH needs your verification form. If you have not viewed it, you will need to plan to arrive on Thursday early. The video will be played at 5:45pm at Maryvale. If this is NOT an option, you need to contact SEARCH well in advance to make other arrangements.
