Protecting God’s Children

The VIRTUS PROTECTING GOD’S CHILDREN ™ Program is on-going in the Diocese of Joliet and mandated that all parishes participate. This program represents a commitment to the safety and wellbeing of the children of our communities.

All parish staff, employees and volunteers who work in ministries that include children must create an account through the VIRTUS system and complete all required components of the program. This includes, but is not limited to, an on-line “Protecting God’s Children” training course, a criminal background check, diocesan policies, and mandated reporter training.

Saint Anne Parish is committed to ensuring that all our children are safe in parish programs.
