The Diocese of Green Bay is committed to creating, providing, and maintaining safe environments in all its parishes, schools, and other institutions so that all persons, especially children, youth, and individuals at risk, will be protected as far as possible from all harm including physical and sexual abuse.
What is VIRTUS®?
VIRTUS® is the brand name that identifies best practices' programs designed to help prevent wrongdoing and promote "right doing" within religious organizations and to raise awareness regarding sexual abuse in our Church and society. The National Catholic Risk Retention Group Inc. created VIRTUS to empower organizations, people to better control risk, and improve the lives of all those who interact with the Church through a continuous process of training and information.
