VIRTUS: Safe Environment Training

Sessions are announced in the parish bulletin.



VIRTUS training is an awareness session which better equips adults to protect children and vulnerable adults in the world around them.  Safe environment training has been given to over 100,000 children, parents, employees, teachers, volunteers and clergy.  Virtus training is required for all parish volunteers who are in regular    or unsupervised contact with children under the age of 18.

Note:  All catechists or volunteers (18 years and older) working with children under the age of 18 must attend a VIRTUS session, complete a background check, and sign a code of conduct.

Periodic sessions are held at St. Patrick’s.  Sessions are announced in the bulletin so please watch for these announcements.  There are many sessions scheduled at other area churches if the dates here at St. Patrick’s do not fit into your schedule.  Each session lasts approximately 3 hours.
