VIRTUS®: Protecting God's Children

Protecting God's Children


Our Lady of Refuge remains committed to protecting children and all others from any form of abuse, in particular, child sexual abuse and protecting against child and sexual predators. In cooperation with the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, Our Lady of Refuge participants in the VIRTUS® Program that requires all parish and school staff, ministers, and volunteers are screened, receive training, maintain certification, and get fingerprinted. Additional information about VIRTUS® can be found on the VIRTUS® website.
