A VIRTUS Training for St. John Volunteers: June 11th 12:30 pm in the Pastoral Center

A VIRTUS class on Protecting God’s Children® Awareness Session will be held Sunday June 11th at 12:30 in the Father Joyce Room.

The training is part of the Diocesan Safe Environment Program for employees and volunteers. The program includes completing a confidential background check, VIRTUS training, and attesting to a Code of Conduct. The Diocese defines volunteers as those “who have direct and/or unmonitored contact with children, youth, persons with disabilities, adults 60 or older, any other vulnerable population”. Please consider attending if you an employee or volunteer that meets this definition and have not completed training. At St John’s our commissions/ministries that meet this definition includes the following: Altar Server Coordinator, Cub & Boy Scouts, Extraordinary Ministers to Home Bound, Hospitals, and Nursing Homes, Music Ministry, Pre-School, Religious Education, Take and Eat – Drivers, as well as members of the Pastoral Council and/or a Commission leader. Employees and Volunteers need to refresh the Safe Environment Requirements every three years. If you previously completed the on-line VIRTUS class you may only need a refresher.

Please reach out to me directly to determine what requirements you may need; I can be reached at mbswindell@cox.net or (860) 386-6009. We plan to host additional sessions.
