Overseas priests & invited speakers. In implementing the practice for safe environment, the Archdiocese would require all non-resident clergy from outside Singapore and any invited speakers for any events organized for the Archdiocese, to first seek approval from Msgr. Ambrose Vaz, Vicar General (Pastoral).

This request is to be processed through the Chancery, accompanied with a duly filled out "Statement of Suitability" form by the proper ecclesiastical superior of the visitor and a letter of support from the relevant local spiritual director. The softcopy "Statement of Suitability" form can be obtained from the Chancery.

At parish level, parish priests may approve speakers and visiting priests but must submit a "Statement of Suitability" to the Chancery in accordance with safe environment policies of the Archdiocese prior to giving permission.

Those intending to engage in public ministry of any sort are also required to submit a "Statement of Suitability" before approval will be given by the Vicar General (Pastoral).
