Virtus - Protecting God's Children
If you are an adult involved with children in any parish/school activity such as sports, volunteer drivers, a school volunteer on a regular basis, religious education, vacation bible school, etc. one of the requirements for volunteering is attendance at a VIRTUS workshop. The Archdiocese requires all volunteers who have regular contact with children under the age of 18 go through a screening process that includes a background check and attendance at a workshop called Virtus: Protecting God’s Children. The workshop includes discussions focused on recognition and prevention of child sexual abuse. Attendees will learn steps that the faith community can take to create a safe environment for every child who comes into our midst.
If you have any questions, contact VIRTUS school coordinator, Tana Adamo, 713.621.6847.
