Important Information Regarding Approval for Volunteering in any Capacity with Children

To register to attend a VIRTUS® session please log on to www.virtusonline.org. You must preregister. We are unable to process walk-ins. You must arrive by 6:30pm and stay for the entire session to receive credit for attending. There are many sessions being offered in the Archdiocese in the coming days. You may attend any session that best fits your schedule. Just click on view a list of sessions to see if one is offered at a convenient time for you ― then you will want to click on “begin the registration process.”

Volunteers are no longer physically fingerprinted. At the end of the VIRTUS registration process you will be given the option to do a Fastrax background check through Selection.com. If you have not been fingerprinted through the Archdiocese in the past five years, you must do this background check in order to be approved to work with children. It takes just a couple minutes. Cost is $25. You can print out your electronic receipt and give it to The Religious Ed Office and you will be reimbursed. If you are a returning volunteer and do not know when you were last fingerprinted, we can give you that information. Feel free to contact the Religious Ed Office at 561-8369.
