CMG connect

What is CMG connect?

Catholic Mutual Group has served as a major insurer to the Catholic Church for over 125 years.  CMG’s unparalleled experience working with over 20,000 locations has given them a clear historical advantage of risk management trends and intervention.  Out of their commitment to the Church’s mission Catholic Mutual Group has developed a new program interfaced through CMG connect.

CMG connect is a new web-base platform that will assist us to ensure that all employees and volunteers who are in a position of trust with children and vulnerable adults within our schools and parishes are trained to recognize behavior patterns of potential abusers and provide pro-active measures for preventing abuse in any context.

“Safe Haven-It’s Up to You” is a three part video which provides vignettes of real-life situations to educate the viewer about methods of grooming, desensitization, bullying and neglect, all of which can lead to abuse.  Each part of the video is immediately followed by a brief questionnaire to further develop understanding.
In addition to the “Safe Haven-It’s Up to You” video, CMG connect will provide a streamlined screening process for employees and volunteers by use of a secure on-line background check and electronic signatures on our diocesan Code of Conduct documents.
