Are you interested in supporting and protecting our children’s future? Consider attending the diocesan-sponsored VIRTUS: Protecting God’s Children for Adults Program. This training session is required for all adult volunteers who work a minimum of 20 hours or more per year with children.
During the three-hour training, a facilitator, who will teach you the tools and show you the resources to maintain a safe environment for all children, will incorporate techniques in a discussion-format to help you recognize the warning signs of child sexual abuse and how to respond to it appropriately and effectively.
