Out of concern for the safety and well-being of children, every diocesan, parish, school or religious education employee or volunteer who is involved with minors on a regular, recurring basis and those who may have an opportunity to be alone with children during parish, school or religious education sponsored events, are required to attend a Virtus Protecting God’s Children Program and provide a certificate of completion to the parish.


St. James will host three remaining Virtus Workshops in August and September. They are scheduled on Wednesday, August 22nd, Saturday, September 15th and Saturday, September 29th. Pre-registration is required and can be done by following the instructions on our parish website: https://stjamesge.org/protecting-gods-children-2/ On that page you will also find the other necessary requirements to complete in order to volunteer with minors.
