St. Joseph Parish Anti-bullying Policy

St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church, Garden City, exists as a community of Catholic prayer, faith, and service that is founded upon respect for the inherent dignity of every human person. The use of any media, including the Internet, or personal encounter, to harass, embarrass, or intimidate is completely unacceptable. Every member of every St. Joseph program or ministry is expected to conform to values and deportment consistent with Catholic faith. Any volunteer or society member who does not do so will be asked to resign from that program or ministry.

St. Joseph Parish Internet Policy

St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church is part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rockville Centre. Canon 216 of the Code of Canon Law states: No undertaking shall assume the name Catholic unless the consent of the competent ecclesiastical authority is given.
The competent ecclesiastical authority in a local parish is the bishop of the diocese or the canonically appointed pastor of the parish. Therefore, any internet site that presents itself under the name of St. Joseph Church to disseminate information or post pictures of any parish activity must receive the expressed permission of the pastor.
