All adults working with children at Holy Martyrs Church are required to complete a training program incorporating the VIRTUS workshop. VIRTUS focuses on educating teachers, parents, and other adults who interact with children about sexual abuse and providing them with information to help prevent abuse. This takes place in “awareness sessions” led by trained facilitators. The awareness sessions consist of videos, worksheets, and discussions. The VIRTUS workshop empowers people to better control risk and improve the lives of all those who interact with the Church.

VIRTUS Sessions  Choose one: 

  • May 15th, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • May 18th, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 6 to 9 p.m.
