The New VIRTUS Program
In its efforts to protect the safety of children in recognizing and preventing child abuse, the Archdiocese of Santa Fe requires all adult staff and volunteers in ANY ministry to be trained in prevention. The VIRTUS program provides this training and is available in both English and Spanish. It can be done online and takes about 30 minutes of your time and can be done at your convenience. It also includes a background check.
If you've taken child protection training from IHM or the Archdiocese previously, you need not take VIRTUS again at this time. Also, anyone who would like to take the training is welcome to take it whether a volunteer or not.
