Report Suspected Abuse or Suspicious Behavior
If you need to report a suspected instance of abuse or suspicious behavior, please contact the Parish Office at 419-382-5511. Please know that any and all information related to reporting abuse or suspicious behavior is confidential and will only be shared with the appropriate Diocese of Toledo personnel. Those personnel will then determine the course forward. For more information, or to contact those Diocesan personnel directly, please refer to the Diocesan website below.

Protecting Youth Guidelines and Registration
As of January 2017, all employees, school volunteers, and CYO coaches/volunteers must complete the protecting youth requirements. These requirements include taking an online course and background check through what is called the Virtus system. These new requirements are to be completed once every five years and grandfather in any classes and background checks completed under the old requirements within the last five years.

Our Lady of Perpetual Help has created its own Protecting Youth Policies that closely follow the requirements set forth by the Diocese of Toledo. To view information from the Diocese, please take a look at the Diocesan information below. To view the OLPH policies, please click here.
