Background Checks and Virtus
The Catholic Diocese of Arlington, the Parish and school are committed to providing a safe environment to all children entrusted to their care. The Office of Child Protection performs background checks and safe environment training for adults and youth in accordance with the requirements of the USCCB Charter on the Protection of Children. The Office of Child Protection requires that all individuals be compliant before beginning a volunteer position within the Diocese.
There are two parts in the process of becoming compliant with the Diocese: All volunteer will need to complete and submit a background check application online in addition to attending a 4 hour VIRTUS – Protecting God's Children® for Adults training session. All volunteers must attend a VIRTUS training session within 45 days of submitting a background check application.
