VIRTUS

What is VIRTUS?
VIRTUS is the brand name that identifies best practices programs designed to help prevent wrongdoing and promote "rightdoing" within religious organizations. The VIRTUS programs empower organizations and people to better control risk and improve the lives of all those who interact with the Church” (from the VIRTUS website).

All St. Louis de Montfort Parish volunteers are required to attend VIRTUS Training and to update that training each month via training bulletins on the Internet. This is extremely important, so that we, as a Church, can take every possible step to protect the people we are trying to help.

Our Parish is beginning the Second Phase of the Program of the Bishops of the United States for protecting our children and teenagers. In our First Phase, we asked all our parish volunteers to submit to a criminal background check. We deeply appreciate your cooperation with this extensive undertaking. The second phase involves training all our volunteers to become more aware of the signs of abuse and to eliminate possibilities for that abuse occurring. We are asking all of our volunteers to attend the VIRTUS training session.

VIRTUS Training:

Forms for VIRTUS will be given out at Registration. All participants in our program must attend VIRTUS Training and complete background check information.

For more information, please contact John McNamara at 744-9515.
