VIRTUS: Protecting All God’s Children is an adult training program which focuses on preventing child sexual abuse. This training is required for all volunteers working with youth at Annunciation. The three-hour session includes facts and myths about abuse as well as offering a five-step process to help protect children. All catechists and volunteers working with children are expected to complete the Essential Three prior to the beginning of their ministry.

Essential Three

  • Sign a Volunteer code of Conduct (Online)
  • Complete a Criminal Background Check (Online).
