All adults are protectors of children. That is why we are part of the Protecting God’s Children program. As an adult, your role in the faith community is to keep your and ears open ant to report any suspicious activity to appropriate authorities and church officials.
All adults in our parish who are staff or volunteer in any capacity are required to attend a Protecting God’s Children awareness seminar which provides helpful information to carry out this important role.
We use the Virtus program. More details about Virtus can be obtained at www.virtus.org
