Volunteer Requirements

We firmly believe in protecting both our children and our volunteers.  The Catholic Church and Archdiocese of Washington has a strict procedure before a volunteer can be present in any ministry with our youth. We have broken it down into 3 easy steps.

Step 1

Sign up for a Virtus account at www.virtus.org and complete a volunteer application form from St. Mary's Church.

Step 2

Attend a 'Protecting God's Children' workshop

Step 3

Schedule a background check
