The SSPX holds itself to highest standards to prevent, recognize, and report abuse

The SSPX developed its own policies, procedures, and training which are customized and adjusted to the particular situations of the SSPX apostolate. Everyone put in a position of trust and working with children or vulnerable adults must be screened, trained, and approved for service in SSPX entities.

Every member, staff, and volunteer worker, before being placed in a position of trust, must successfully complete a thorough application and screening process, follow the SSPX training program, and be approved for work with minors and vulnerable adults. 

Training, Policies & Procedures

The SSPX training program raises awareness to improve the recognition, reporting, and prevention of child abuse. The Policies and Procedures and the Standards of Conduct regarding sexual misconduct in the Society of Saint Pius X are part of this training. 

Background Evaluations

The SSPX evaluates the background of all its parish, school, or other paid personnel and volunteers whose duties include contact with minors.


We will gather necessary information and store it in a secure manner in our priories or at the District Headquarters. We oversee the recruitment and screening of volunteers and employees and ensure the proper training and certification of our staff.

Third Party Supervision

Plan to Protect® helps the US-District keep its program to the highest standards. The program is updated regularly and all the administrators and trainers are certified by Plan to Protect®.
