Safe Environment Program training, the Knights of Columbus’ initiative to protect children and other vulnerable persons, is available online at www.kofc.org by clicking on SAFE ENVIRONMENT PROGRAM and then the blue box for PRAESIDIUM’S ARMATUS® SAFE ENVIRONMENT PROGRAM TRAINING.  Each member is encouraged to take the training because the Knights have programs, like the spaghetti dinner and Basketball Free Throw, that involve children.
