Liability / Photo / Safe Environment Waiver *
I request that St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church allow my youth to attend Life Teen this school year. In consideration for my teenager's participation, on behalf of myself, my teenagers, and our heirs, assigns, executors, and personal representatives, I hereby release, absolve, indemnify and agree to hold harmless St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Parish in Avondale, the Roman Catholic Church of the Diocese of Phoenix, and any and all of their officers, directors, agents, employees, representatives, volunteers, or sponsors from any and all liability for any and all injury that may arise out of participation in this activity. I authorize the supervisor of the ministry or his/her designee to provide first aid or similar care in non-emergency situations and to seek emergency medical assistance when they deem it necessary, for which I will be financially responsible.
I give permission to have photographs taken of my teenager for the purpose of parish use. This may include use in parish publications, on social media or parish website(s).
The Diocese of Phoenix mandates that Safe Environment training is given to every child in Catholic school and religious education programs. Age-appropriate Safe Environment Training will be integrated into a Life Teen session and offered to the teen(s) attending in the Fall. For specific dates, to receive a copy of the curriculum, or schedule separate training for your teen, please contact the youth minister.
