Protecting God's Children (VIRTUS) Seminar
***This session is now full.***
All adult volunteers who have substantial contact with children and all employees who work with children are required to comply with the Diocese of Arlington Policy on the Protection of Children/Young People before initiating service. This includes volunteers such as school parents and guardians, home room parents, religious education teachers and aides, coaches and Scout leaders. This policy requires these volunteers to complete an application, background check and a seminar on Protecting God’s Children (VIRTUS). The seminar must be completed within 45 days of submitting the forms for the background check.
There will be a VIRTUS seminar at St. Agnes on Thursday, July 19, at 6:00 PM until approximately 9:00PM in the Parish Hall. Registration for this seminar is available online at virtus.org. The schedule for other seminars offered throughout the Diocese is also available on this website. If you plan to volunteer with children at St. Agnes School or with any St. Agnes parish program or have any questions, please contact Mrs. Joan Biehler, Program Coordinator, at 703-525-1166, or firstname.lastname@example.org for information about compliance, the Seminar and/or a forms packet.
