It is mandated by the Archdiocese of Boston that
anyone who will be volunteering and helping with the youth
of St. John’s, whether it be for Religious Education, Drop-In,
Scouts, Retreats, etc., must take VIRTUS Training Class.
The VIRTUS program confronts child sexual abuse
through its PROTECTING GOD’S CHILDREN Programs.
Most organizations that work with children have a child
safety program in place. The VIRTUS program maximizes
those efforts by helping churches and religious organizations
renew their role as safe havens for children and empowering
them with the tools to help adults protect children. The
classes will be held here at St. John’s school building. They
last approximately 2 to 2 1/2hrs. The information you will
be hearing is NOT for children to see or hear.
Please call Shirley Guthro at 617 846-3100 to
register for the class you would like to attend:
Saturday, Sept. 8 at 9:00am in room 7 or
Monday, Oct. 1 at 6:30 in room 7
