Virtus recently updated their software so that diocesan locations can manage their employees and volunteers based on their role. Employees must conform to higher child protection standards than regular volunteers and the software upgrades that were made provides the tools that Safe Site Coordinators need to maintain these standards.
Please log into your Virtus account and update your profile based on your relationship with the diocesan location that you serve.
- To update your profile, log into your Virtus account and click on the "Update My Account" link located in the upper right of your screen. From there you may change your primary location, update your role or add volunteer locations by clicking on the blue "Click to update locations/roles" link at the bottom of your profile.
- Employees in the Archdiocese must list their diocesan place of employment as their primary location regardless of where they worship.
- Employees and parishioners may volunteer in multiple diocesan locations. When a volunteer location is added, you will automatically appear as an approved volunteer at that location.
Note: each diocesan location must conform to a minimum set of child protection standards but diocesan locations may choose to set higher standards than the Archdiocese. St. Charles is one such location. If you volunteer at a another location, you may be contacted by the Safe Site Coordinator at that location indicating that you need to meet additional volunteer requirements. Please contact me if you need assistance updating your Virtus profile.
