A key to our commitment to promoting safe environments in our parishes, Catholic schools and communities is for all persons in positions of trust in regard to minors and vulnerable adults to fulfill the Enhanced Essential 3 requirements (EE3). The EE3 relates to 1) the Code of Conduct, 2) safe environment training and 3) background checks, with re-credentialing required every three years. Your involvement at your parish or Catholic school as an employee or volunteer who interacts with children, youth or vulnerable adults warrants compliance with the Archdiocese’s Safe Environment requirements.
If this is your first volunteer/employee position through the Archdiocese of St. Paul/Minneapolis, the VIRTUS Online Registration – NEW Users will assist you in this process.
You will also need to complete training on Mandatory Reporting. You may sign the Code of Conduct, submit to the background check, and pre-register for an upcoming VIRTUS session via the www.virtus.org website. Attached are instructions on how to do so.
You can take the VIRTUS training at any location within the Archdiocese if the Epiphany sessions do not work in your schedule. The following 2017/2018 Epiphany training sessions are located in the Hearth Room and start at 6:30 p.m. Please arrive 10 minutes early to register and receive your packet.

You can complete your background re-check, complete Safe Environment re-training, as well as read and sign a Code of Conduct online at www.virtus.org.
If you previously attended a VIRTUS session, please do not create a new account; you MUST log in using your existing account. If you do not remember your ID/Password, please contact our volunteer coordinator and she will assist you. The Guide for Current Employees and Volunteers will walk you through the process of logging in. Once you log into your account, you will have access to the background recheck, re-training video, and Code of Conduct within the Toolbox tab.
If you need assistance with any of these computer related tasks, please feel free to contact us and we’ll help you through it.
All teens under the age of 18 working with youth and/or vulnerable adults must fill out the Teen Code of Conduct. Also provide two letters of reference from contacts other than your relatives or have your references fill out the Student Volunteer Character Reference form below. Your group leader may have other forms necessary to be completed prior to start of volunteering.
