The Archdiocese of Cincinnati requires any adult working with children to undergo a criminal background check and complete a training course aimed at educating adults about signs of possible sex abuse. VIRTUS training and a background check must be completed before any volunteering can take place that involves a child.
The VIRTUS® Protecting God’s Children Awareness Session are three hours long. You must register in advance. Click on the registration section in the left hand column of the screen. You do not need a parish or school employee to register you. The VIRTUS program is an ongoing educational process that includes monthly bulletins with a variety of information. If you fall behind in reading these electronic bulletins, your status with the Archdiocese will be suspended. There is no charge for the VIRTUS session.
Guardian Angels can provide you a Token (code) to cover the cost of your background check. To obtain that information, contact Bradley Barnes at (513)624-3148 or email her, firstname.lastname@example.org.
