All staff and catechist volunteers at St. David the King are VIRTUS-trained.
What is VIRTUS? It is the Protecting God’s Children Program. It is a 3-4 hour awareness session to educate adults on recognizing the warning signs of child sexual abuse and what to do when they suspect a child is being victimized.
The Child and Youth Protection unit of the Diocese of Trenton works with parishes and schools to ensure that all employees and volunteers that have regular and consistent contact with children receive the proper training and have current criminal background checks. This training gives employees and volunteers the safety tools they will need in all aspects of their lives. The Protection Unit assists parishes and schools in implementing and scheduling VIRTUS training programs.
