Virtus Registration

VIRTUS Sessions
St. Columbkille Volunteers

Did you know that all adult volunteers in this Archdiocese who have ongoing contact with children or young people need to attend a "VIRTUS: Protecting God's Children for Adults" session?

Some examples of church and school volunteers who need to attend a VIRTUS session are: catechists, preschool aides, nursery helpers, companion ministers and youth group leaders. The one and one-half hour VIRTUS session consists of an online course, questions, then a printed certificate, to show you took the course.  Among other things, VIRTUS online attendees will learn to recognize the signs and symptoms that indicate a child is being abused or exploited in some way, environmental factors to be aware of in the physical space of the parish or school, how abusers operate, and things parents can do to help educate their children about how to respond to inappropriate behavior toward them.

To pre-register, please visit It is very important that you contact Alice Noethe, at 563-583-9117 prior to taking the course. The session online are geared to work with your schedule.  

If you would like more information about VIRTUS, please contact Alice Noethe, 583-9117.
