I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, employees, volunteers, and program participants and their families.
I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to myself (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I may experience or incur in connection with my participation in Faith Formation/ Youth Ministry at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church (“Claims”).
