It is the policy of the Diocese of Charlotte that all persons including staff, faculty, and volunteers must participate in a program called Protecting God’s Children. Registration can be completed through your parish or online at the Virtus website. A copy of the certificate of attendance must be submitted to the church office upon completion.
Any volunteer must participate in the Protecting God’s Children Workshop before working with children at all. This includes coaching any sports team. In addition to attending the Protecting God’s Children Workshop, you need to register on the Virtus website and keep current on Virtus training updates. The Protecting God’s Children Workshop is offered regularly throughout the Diocese. For more information, please go to www.virtus.org.
Here is a copy of the schedule for Protecting God’s Children that I coped from the Diocese of Charlotte website.
