Protecting God’s Children (VIRTUS) Information for Parents

Dear Parents,

Due to the various ways faith formation is being carried out during the pandemic, St. Mary’s is asking parents to cover the required Protecting God’s Children (VIRTUS) material for the safety of your children. 

Please use the appropriate links listed below for the four different age groups. There is a video within each lesson plan to be watched with your children, to begin the conversation.

  • To help us prepare a written report on our participation, we ask that you print, complete and return this form. Completed forms are due back to the Faith Formation Office or the Rectory by Wednesday, October 28.  (Additional copies of the form are available in both locations: in the Faith Formation Office or on the table in the Rectory vestibule).

  •  If, for some reason, you do not want to have this conversation with your child(ren), please contact Sister Therese at theresec@stmarysonthehill.org by Wednesday, October 28.

You should have received documents with these links, as well as the completion form, via email as well.

Thank you for your continued cooperation and support.
