September 2016, the Diocese of Green Bay subscribed to VIRTUS® for the following VIRTUS® Lesson Plans to provide a consistent Safe Environment foundation for our children. It is the shared responsibility of parents, teachers, and catechists to give our children the awareness and tools they need to overcome anyone who intends to harm them. It is an expectation that all Catholic Schools and Faith Formation programs use the VIRTUS® Lesson plans. Additional resources to supplement and build on what is provided here are available at: gbresources.org/safe-environment.
