What is VIRTUS?
VIRTUS is a program created by the National Catholic Risk Retention Group in the United States with a "Protecting God's
Children" component that combats sexual abuse of children in the Church. It is currently in use in over 80 dioceses in the
United States.
VIRTUS focuses on educating teachers, parents, and other adults who interact with children about sexual abuse and
providing them with information to help prevent abuse. This takes place in 'awareness sessions' led by trained facilitators.
The awareness sessions consist of videos, worksheets, and discussions. The videos incorporate interviews with both victims and convicted perpetrators.
VIRTUS is a required element for anyone who plans to become involved in a ministry that comes in contact with children or
youth. It is also a great resource for parents and grandparents!!!
To register go to and follow the prompts. There is no cost for the program and free childcare can be
provided. Please contact Valerie at the office for more information
