EIM - Ethics and Integrity in Ministry

What is the Purpose of the EIM Program?

The Ethics and Integrity in Ministry program of Sacred Heart Rockne is devoted to providing the safest possible environment for our parishioners and visitors. The program promotes the protection of minors, elderly adults and adults with disabilities as well as ethical behavior in all ministry.

Who Should Participate in the EIM Program? 

Volunteers involved in many ministries -- teachers, lay readers, Eucharistic ministers, ushers, musicians, etc. -- must participate in the program. This includes an application, agreement to a background check, an in-person workshop, and a refresher every three years to ensure that their knowledge of EIM policies and procedures are up-to-date.

How do I Initiate an Application?

New applicants must attend an in-person EIM Workshop within 60 days of submitting an EIM Application to remain compliant and eligible to serve in ministry. Sign up for a workshop through your EIM account.

How do I Renew My Training?

What if I Have Questions?

Maintaining a safe environment and ensuring that all people are treated in an ethical and fair fashion is the responsibility of all parishioners.
