What is VIRTUS?
As part of our commitment to protecting the most precious among us, everyone who volunteers with children, the elderly, or vulnerable adults is required to undergo free VIRTUS training as part of the “Essential 3” preparation (VIRTUS, background check, and Code of Conduct).
Code of Conduct
All our parish lay leadership, professional staff and volunteer ministers sign a Code of Conduct each year to ensure that we understand and fully commit to our responsibilities to ensure the safety and dignity of our fellow parishioners that we serve, especially children and vulnerable adults.
You can access the online website that tracks this and other credentials for the Archdiocese here. If you have been VIRTUS trained or background-checked in the past, you already have a User ID. Send an email to the parish office if you do not know your password (creating a duplicate User ID disrupts the credentialing system).
Contact our Safe Environment Coordinator, Sarah Richards at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
