  • Does the old seminar still count or do I need to do the CMGConnect training?

    The old seminar is sufficient until your background check needs to be renewed. At which time, you will need to do the training and background check through CMGconnect.

  • I did my background check before for the Salina Diocese, why do I have to do it again?

    In the past, every 5 years your background check was automatically renewed if you were still an active volunteer in St. Thomas More programs involving children or youth. Since the diocese changed to this system, you now need to do the online forms to renew every 5 years.

  • I did my background check in another diocese. Do I need to do it again for Salina Diocese?

    The Salina Diocese does not accept background checks from other dioceses.
