VIRTUS Training
All adult volunteers in this archdiocese who have ongoing contact with children or young people need to attend a “VIRTUS: Protecting God’s Children for Adults” session.  Some examples of church and school volunteers who need to attend a VIRTUS session are: catechists, preschool aides and youth group leaders. The three-hour VIRTUS session consists of a presentation of printed materials, videos, and group discussion. Among other things, VIRTUS attendees will learn to recognize the signs and symptoms that indicate a child is being abused or exploited in some way, environmental factors to be aware of in the physical space of the parish or school, how abusers operate, and things parents can do to help educate their children about how to respond to inappropriate behavior toward them.

To pre-registerplease visit www.virtus.org and click on the "Registration" link in the left-hand column. It is very important that you pre-register to make sure your attendance is counted. It also lets the archdiocese contact you if your session is canceled. If the session at (LOCATION) does not work with your schedule, please feel free to choose another session. There are dozens of other sessions scheduled throughout the archdiocese, and you may register for any session outside your home parish or school that’s not listed as only for employees or volunteers of the hosting institution.
