|Adult Hold Harmless Indemnity Agreement |
Ideally, individuals utilizing parish premises for activities that are neither parish sponsored nor affiliated should be providing the parish with a certificate of insurance naming the parish and the Arch/Diocese as an additional insured. However, in certain instances when groups or individuals do not have insurance, the Adult Hold Harmless/Indemnity Agreement can be used. The Adult Hold Harmless/Indemnity Agreement has not been designed to be a replacement for insurance but has been developed only for certain situations.

|Emergency Procedures App Instructions|
Emergency situations happen every day. If an emergency happened at one of your facilities, do you think the staff or volunteers would know what to do?
Catholic Mutual Group has been promoting use of the Emergency Response Procedures Manuals to our membership over the past decade. While these are great to have when an emergency occurs, they aren’t always easily accessible. This is why Catholic Mutual Group created an app for mobile devices so this information can be available to everyone right at their fingertips.
The app can provide easily accessible procedures for your location’s employees and volunteers so they can respond appropriately and efficiently during a crisis.
The app is available in the App Store or the Play Store for all Apple and Android devices. There is no charge for use of the app. The app can also be customized by selecting which types and which order the procedures would show up on the device. The emergency contacts section can be customized to have the correct phone numbers to call in case of any type of emergency.
If you have any questions regarding this information, please feel free to contact Kevin Maloney 304-230-5640.
