What is VIRTUS?

VIRTUS is an international agency dedicated towards protecting children and vulnerable adults from abuse through education and awareness. This program helps to safeguard our communities from the horrors and scandals the Church has witnessed far too often in its history. By empowering our community members with knowledge and avenues to report suspicious behaviors we can work together to protect our parish and provide support for those who may be victims of sin.
