It is important that you register immediately whether you select a class or not so that your paperwork may be processed.
When you get to the page that asks you to sign up for a class, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on “submit registration”.
The system will then say, “You did not select a training session. Do you want to select a training session at this time? Say “NO”.
The system will then say, “If you do not select a session now and are required to attend one, you will need to come back to this site, log in and select a session at a later date.” Say, “Okay”.
The system will tell you that you have successfully registered.
YOUR ACCOUNT IS ACTIVE
Your account is active after:
(1) the 2007 Acceptance Form is recorded,
(2) your background check has been processed through your coordinator, the Diocese and Frankfort, and
(3) your class attendance has been verified.
An email from Virtus will be sent to you when your account is open. It will include your user id and password. Be sure that your spam blocker is setup to accept emails from email@example.com .
Please register only ONCE. Opening more than one account causes confusion and keeps you from remaining compliant.
If you need to change your contact information or locations, enter your id and password. Click on “update my account”. Make the desired change. SAVE.
Now you are ready to begin your monthly bulletins. One bulletin will be posted at www.virtus.org on the first Sunday of each month. You have 30 days to complete the bulletin.
If you go beyond 30 days, your TRAINING tab will disappear letting your “locations” know that you are not currently volunteering and your account will be temporarily suspended until you complete your bulletins during an"open month"
"Open months" are April, August, and December those wishing to resume volunteering will have the opportunity to complete ALL missed bulletins. Your training tab will automatically appear and you can catch up and continue monthly bulletins going forward.
”If for some reason, you have fallen behind 1 or 2 bulletins, have a valid reason why your account is in Suspension and you need to resume volunteering immediately, you may make the request through your school or parish.”
