Protecting God's Children
VIRTUS: Protecting God's Children for Adult training seminars are 4-hour training sessions where employees, volunteers and other responsible adults in the community can learn how to identify sexual abuse, how to report it when it is seen, and what they can do as members of the community to ensure that it is eradicated.
Sessions are held throughout the year at parishes and schools throughout the diocese and are free of charge to all participants. If you are interested in attending and can't find a session that meets your needs for time or location, please contact your parish liaison to request a new session be scheduled.
Attendance at a seminar is required for all employees of the diocese and all volunteers with substantial contact with children, but all adults is welcome to attend. No children may attend and in almost all cases childcare will not be provided. For additional information, contact the parish where the session will be held, or check the session's notes.
