Volunteers are an intricate part of our school. One of the better-known benefits of volunteering is the impact on the community. Unpaid volunteers are often the glue that holds a community together. Volunteering allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place. Even helping out with the smallest tasks can make a real difference to the lives of people, animals, and organizations in need. And volunteering is a two-way street: It can benefit you and your family as much as the cause you choose to help. Dedicating your time as a volunteer helps you make new friends, expand your network, and boost your social skills. Thank you so much for volunteering.

Virtus Training

VIRTUS Training
What’s the deal with VIRTUS? All volunteers working with our youth or vulnerable adults must complete Virtus Training – Essential 3 for Adults. This includes attending a 3-hour class (awareness session organized around two videos and pertinent discussion questions), background check (through McDowell Agency) – completed prior to beginning of service & code of conduct, completed prior to beginning service. In 2015, The Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis updated requirements to include an online update every three years after your initial approval. This means all volunteers who attended a class prior to June 30, 2014 and did not do a video update in the last year, now need to update. Re-credentialing every 3 years (safe environment retraining, background recheck, sign Code).
How do I know if I am up to date? 1. Login to your account at www.virtusonline.org, look under the training tab for your original training date. 2. If you don’t know or remember your username, or want to join our team of volunteers, you need to contact the school at 507-645-8136.
