VIRTUS – Protecting God’s Children Facilitator Training:

This one-day “train the trainer” is for individuals selected by their pastors/principals to become members of the Child Abuse Prevention Team. The individuals will be trained in the adult awareness program; Virtus/Protecting God’s Children (PGC), what to do if child abuse or neglect is suspected, observed or disclosed, and how to report such allegations.   

Upon completion of the training participants will be responsible for training all new clergy, employees, and volunteers in their parish/school using VIRTUS “Protecting God’s Children” (PGC).     

All materials are provided free of charge. Each parish/school may send up to five individuals to this training. Lunch will be served.
