CORI Requirements

Safe Environment Training and CORI Requirements for Volunteers:

Bishop Feehan and the Fall River Diocese are committed to the protection of all of our students.  Accordingly, all of our faculty and staff and all of our volunteers must complete Safe Environment training and CORI (background check) before working or volunteering at Feehan.

A CORI background check is good for all Fall River Diocese entities, St. John the Evangelist (SJE), St. Mary-Sacred Heart (SMSH), or St Mary School (Mansfield). Please let us know if you have been approved by any of these other schools or parishes.

NEW Applicants

For NEW Applicants:

 
1. Register on the One Feehan Volunteers Portal.
 
2. Complete the Safe Environment Training from the diocese. This includes watching a couple of videos and answering some questions.  This Safe Environment Training will be good for six years once it is complete.

b. Email your certificate of completion (provided to you electronically at the end of the training) to volunteers@bishopfeehan.com

Once all are submitted and the CORI process is finalized– you're all set!  Your CORI status will be marked as "yes" in our One Feehan Volunteers software system, and then volunteer leaders will be able to reach out to you.  
 
We know this is a bit of paperwork and time (thank you!), but we also know that the protection of our kids makes this worthwhile.
