Most organizations that work with children have some sort of child safety program. Through the Protecting God’s Children Program, the educational programs within the Diocese of Covington participate in VIRTUS to help refine their role as child-safe environments and empowering caring adults to protect children.

VIRTUS is the brand name that identifies best practices programs designed to help prevent wrong doing and promote "right doing" within religious organizations. The VIRTUS programs empower organizations and people to better control risk and improve the lives of all those who interact with the Church.
