VIRTUS Training at St. Mary Catholic School
St. Mary Catholic School and the Archdiocese of Baltimore have a commitment to maintaining the trust of the faithful by providing our children and youth with safe environments characterized by healthy relationships. With our longstanding commitment in mind, all parishes and archdiocesan Catholic schools use VIRTUS, a compliance management system that allows all parishes and schools to facilitate compliance with archdiocesan child protection requirements for all volunteers who work with minors, employees, and clergy.
The current and effective version of the Archdiocese of Baltimore’s Child and Youth Protection Policies and Procedures, including the Statement of Policy for the Protection of Children &Youth and the Code of Conduct for Church Personnel of the Archdiocese of Baltimore, which incorporates any revisions to the Archdiocese of Baltimore’s Child and Youth Protection Policies and Procedures that may be made from time to time, is available on the Child and Youth Protection page of the Archdiocese of Baltimore’s website (www.archbalt.org) and on the Archdiocese of Baltimore’s online compliance management system, VIRTUS. Because paper/printed copies of the Archdiocese of Baltimore’s Child and Youth Protection Policies and Procedures may be inaccurate or out of date, only the version of the Archdiocese of Baltimore’s Child and Youth Protection Policies and Procedures posted on the Archdiocese of Baltimore’s website and VIRTUS may be relied upon.
Please register as a St. Mary Catholic School volunteer at http://www.virtusonline.org/virtus/. All new volunteers should complete the process as soon as possible. Please contact Katie Rock, our screening coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or (301) 739-0390 with any questions or concerns.
