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 four Virtus Workshops in August and September for its parishioners. They are scheduled on Tuesday, August 13th, Wednesday, August 21st, Saturday, September 7th and Saturday, September 21st. Pre-registration is required and must be completed online at http://www.virtusonline.org/virtus/. Click on First-Time Registrant in the left column and it will guide you through the process.
