If you have a driver’s license/ID issued from any state other than MA or RI, or you have lived outside of MA within the last 10 years you need to do one additional step at https://fallriver.cmgconnect.org/Please go under Optional Trainings, and select “National Background Check – Fall River” so a national background check can be run. It is at no expense to the individual, just an additional step for the diocese to do for certification.
