The Archdiocese of St. Paul/Minneapolis requires all volunteers to complete the "Essential 3". The "Essential 3" are attendance at a Virtus session, a completed background check, and a signed code of conduct.
Attendance at a Virtus session is a one-time, 3 hour requirement. There are many Virtus sessions available throughout the year and you can attend a session at St. Josephs or any other parish. If you are new to St. Josephs and have already attended a session at another parish, please provide us with the location and approximate date you attended. For more information or to register for a VIRTUS session please go to www.virtus.org.
Once attendance at a Virtus session is documented, all volunteers need to complete a simple background check and sign the volunteers code of conduct.
All volunteers need to have a background check. For new volunteers, a simple background check will be requested after you have completed your one-time Virtus Session.
Signed Code of Conduct
The Code of Conduct form needs to be updated by volunteers each year that he or she volunteers in the school or parish. We update our Code of Conduct forms in the fall or as needed.
