VIRTUS - PROTECTING GOD’S CHILDREN
Tuesday, May 21 at 6:00 p.m.
In September 2003 St. Michael the Archangel began implementing the VIRTUS program which is a program designed to prevent and protect children from child sexual abuse. The educational component of this program is called ―Protecting God’s Children‖ and the Archdiocese requires all those 16 years and older in every parish who work and volunteer around children to take this awareness session; whether you volunteer weekly or once a year. This includes school volunteers, coaches, scout leaders, religious education catechists, Little One’s Worship volunteers, Vacation Bible School volunteers and nursery volunteers. We are grateful to all those who volunteer in a children’s ministry within our parish and recognize that taking this class is an added responsibility but please know that we are dedicated to providing children the safest environment possible.
