Child Protection and Safety (Virtus)


Child Protection and Safety

Background Checks

The Diocese, the parish and the school are committed to providing a safe environment to all children entrusted to their care. A critical prerequisite for volunteer work involving direct contact with the children is compliance with the Child Protection and Safety Program instituted by the Diocese of Arlington. Compliance involves application procedures, including background checks. Forms and information about the application procedures can be found in the school or parish office, or at the Diocese Link below. Questions should be directed to Zoraida Conde (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) on the parish staff.

VIRTUS - Protecting God's Children

Compliance also requires completing - within 45 days of the start of volunteer work -- a PROTECTING GOD'S CHILDREN training program (otherwise known as the "VIRTUS" program).

More information is available at the Diocese of Arlington Child Protection website.
