Safe and Sacred
Safe and Sacred is the name of the child protection program of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.

Thank you for your diligence - St. Malachy Parish strives to keep ALL children safe!
Circle of Grace
Circle of Grace Program identifies a child’s personal space where he/she should be comfortable. Should this space ever be compromised, the child should share with a “trusted” adult. As the VIRTUS Program is focused on how adults can protect children, the Circle of Grace program is geared towards the child’s view. Children in grades kindergarten through high school are made aware of the Circle of Grace program as part of the religious education curriculum.
