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?

If you work with children in the parish as a catechist, babysitter, etc., and are 18 or older, you must be Virtus trained.

Best practice is a standard. For risk control, it is a standard of effective protocols, procedures and methods for preventing and responding to risk. The standard requires an organization to demand and enforce "no tolerance" for wrongdoing and open communication channels with employees, volunteers, and others who interact with the organization. When risk is identified, the best practice standard requires the organization to move quickly to eliminate or diminish the risk—fairly, effectively, and professionally. The VIRTUS programs follow this standard.

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.
