VIRTUS: Protecting God’s Children

Studies show that one in four females, and one in six males, will be a victim of sexual abuse by the time they reach the age of 18.  You can help prevent this from happening.  The Diocese of Jefferson City will hold a VIRTUS® Protecting God’s Children class on Sunday, November 18, 2018 at the Alphonse J. Schwartze Catholic Center, Jefferson City.  The Catholic Center is located behind the Cathedral of St. Joseph.  The class will be held in Room 306 and will begin at 1:00 p.m.   Participants must register in advance at www.virtus.org.  Please arrive early so that the class may begin on time.  Due to the nature of the subject, children are discouraged from attending.

 This program is one component of the overall effort to protect God’s children and vulnerable adults.  All employees and volunteers who have contact with children and youth are required to attend a Protecting God’s Children session.  All parents, grandparents and other adults in the parish community are encouraged to attend.  To view valuable resources regarding the protection of children and vulnerable adults, please go to www.virtus.org or the USCCB’s website at http://www.usccb.org/issues-and-action/child-and-youth-protection/index.cfm.
