Dennis Tennessen – Virtus Coordinator
As a Volunteer Safe Environment Coordinator I am responsible for compliance with the Archdiocesan Safe Environment Policy and Requirements that fulfill the Charter for Protection of Children and Young People.
VIRTUS is a program created by the National Catholic Risk Retention Group in the United States with a “Protecting God’s Children” component that combats sexual abuse of children in the Church.
VIRTUS focuses on educating teachers, parents, and other adults who interact with children about sexual abuse and providing them with information to help prevent abuse.
As a volunteer I assist implementation of this program to insure that no abuse takes place in our parish.
