VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENTS – ESSENTIAL 3
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 Essential 3 requirements (E3). All employees as well as any volunteer who has either regular or unsupervised interaction with youth or vulnerable adults are required to complete the E3, which consists of:
- Reading and signing a Code of Conduct.
- Submitting to a background check. If you completed a background check within the previous 3 years at another Catholic church or school, please contact the parish or Catholic School office.
- Attending a VIRTUS Protecting God’s Children Safe Environment Training. *VIRTUS is now offered virtually.* This must be completed within 30 days of beginning employment or volunteer services. If you are a volunteer chaperone going off-site with youth, you must complete prior to going off-site.
*If you have already attended a VIRTUS session in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis OR in another diocese that uses the VIRTUS program, You already have an account. PLEASE CONTACT THE PARISH OFFICE for login information.
To begin the steps to complete E3, go to www.Virtusonline.org.
