"Protecting God's Children" is for all employees and volunteers of the Diocese of Covington who in any way provide a safe environment for children. It is a policy of the Diocese that anyone who drives or chaperones children on a school or parish field trip or event, volunteers in the classroom, serves as a coach, or comes in contact in a volunteer role with our children in any way, MUST complete the Virtus Training Program "Protecting God's Children." Each individual must also have on file in the School Office a signed "Acceptance Form - Policies and Procedures for Addressing Sexual Misconduct." Participants must also undergo a criminal background check. Pre-registration is mandatory for the Virtus Program training. To register, go to: www.virtus.org "Registration."

After completing a three-year cycle of monthly bulletins,yearly and quarterly recertification modules are found under the "Recertification" link on the left-hand side of the MY TRAINING page.
