Virtus “Protecting God’s Children”

“Protecting God’s Children” virtus_logo

Preventing child sexual abuse is the goal of the Archdiocesan Safe Environment Office. “Protecting God’s Children’s” is the program selected by the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston to educate clergy, staff, and volunteers who work with children and youth about child sexual abuse and the ways to create a safe environment for children. The 3-hour live session includes videos and facilitated discussions that focus on the prevention of abuse and the protection of children. Adults learn how to recognize the warning signs of sexual abuse and to respond appropriately. You will learn about steps that the faith community can take to create a safe environment for all God’s children and how to respond when adults behave in a way that raises concerns.
