Virtus Training Classes at Our Lady of the Assumption

All employees and volunteers - that work with or around children - should attend the Virtus Training. The Virtus training must be updated every 4 years.  However, instead of the 3-hour Protecting God's Children program, people can recertify by completing the 1.5 hour Keeping the Promise Alive program.
