Protecting God’s Children

The Archdiocese of Chicago has requirements of Catechists, 18 years of age and older, that must be completed in order for them to be volunteers – catechists and aides.

VIRTUS is the brand name that identifies best practices programs designed to help prevent wrongdoing and promote “rightdoing” within religious organizations. The VIRTUS programs empower organizations and people to better control risk and improve the lives of all those who interact with the Church.
