Child abuse awareness & prevention programs
In adherence to Article 12 of the Charter, the Diocese of Tulsa and VIRTUS provide a web-based online training program in English and Spanish that specializes in helping churches and religious organizations create safe environments for children and youth. VIRTUS is mandatory for all Employees and Covered Volunteers who have or could have substantial contact with children. No Employee or Covered Volunteer may partake in any Church ministry or function without first completing the mandatory VIRTUS program and receiving confirmation and clearance to serve by their VIRTUS Local Administrator. The VIRTUS Requirements for the Diocese of Tulsa are presented in the Policies & Procedures for the Protection of Children & Young People [Link PDF] under II. Procedures for Protecting Minors from Sexual Abuse.
