Virtus/Safe Environment for Children and Youth

In our continuing effort to maintain a safe environment for all children at our parish activities, all volunteers and employees must be in compliance with the Archdiocese's Decree on Child Protection.

This includes attending a VIRTUS live training session, having a valid background check and staying current on the monthly VIRTUS bulletins.

The VIRTUS live training sessions are available at many different parishes and schools, and as long as your account has "OLVISITATION CINCINNATI" listed as a location, you can attend a session anywhere in the Archdiocese. To create an account and see available live training sessions, follow this link:  http://www.virtus.org/virtus/  

It is required that all volunteers and employees complete an online background check through Selection.com.  Please note that we do not reimburse for the cost of the online check as we use the pre-paid tokens. To request a token, or if you have any questions regarding your VIRTUS account, contact our Safe Environment Coordinator, Laura Hampel, at lhampel@olvisitation.org or 347-2203. Do not contact the VIRTUS Help Desk. School employees are required to complete additional finerprint-background checks per state law and the Ohio Department of Education licensing requirements.

Thank you in advance for your efforts in helping Our Lady of the Visitation have a safe environment in which our children can worship, work and play.
