Virtus Training:

Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart Parish takes the safety of our children very seriously. We participate in the Diocesan-wide Virtus – Protecting God’s Children program.  All our catechists, staff members, and volunteers who work closely with children are required to receive this special training. 

New Catechists/Volunteers: all new volunteers are required to take this training online or at a live session.  To begin the online session print instructions below then go to the training. A session will be offered at OLIH on October 5 in the Banquet Room. Contact Abby for more information.
