VIRTUS is a nationally recognized vendor utilized by 120 dioceses across the United States, offering a comprehensive program including Safe Environment training for adults, children and youth. VIRTUS also provides a convenient way for participants to register for training sessions. Please see the calendar below for upcoming training dates, times, and locations.

What is the VIRTUS Protecting God’s Children training session?

The VIRTUS Protecting God’s Children training incorporates proven best practice standards for the prevention of child sexual abuse by all who interact with children. Participants are made aware of the signs of child sexual abuse, the methods and means by which offenders commit abuse, and are presented with five steps to prevent child sexual abuse. Facilitators incorporate Archdiocesan policies and procedures into the training, defining child sexual abuse, and addressing the legal requirements of reporting child sexual abuse, along with the two videos that are a part of the session.

Why am I required to attend a VIRTUS Protecting God’s Children training session?

The Archdiocese of Atlanta is committed to the safety and well-being of its children, youth, and vulnerable individuals.  The program implements procedures to minimize risk while building and fostering a culture of a safety. It requires all clergy, all employees, and volunteers working with children, youth, and/or vulnerable individuals to attend the VIRTUS Protecting God’s Children training which is part of the comprehensive Safe Environment compliance program. The Archdiocese does not tolerate abuse or neglect of anyone. It will comply with all obligations of civil and Canon Law; it will promote healing where it is needed, provide education, training and guidance when it is appropriate, and endeavor to prevent any abuse of minors or vulnerable adults with firm justice and mercy towards all.

Who must attend a VIRTUS Protecting God’s Children training session?

All clergy, all employees regardless of duties, and volunteers working with children and/or vulnerable individuals must attend a VIRTUS Protecting God’s Children training before they begin paid or volunteer work for the Archdiocese of Atlanta. Continuing education training consists of monthly bulletins sent via email to select users (e.g. educators, youth ministers) after attending a VIRTUS Protecting God’s Children. Individuals will be notified by the Safe Environment Coordinator at their location when it is time to renew their background screening and/or take the refresher course. Both the background screening and VIRTUS training are required to be renewed every five years.

Village Gatherings | Young Adults, Single & Married

Calling all young adults, single and married, and families with kids! We are kicking off a new ministry to help us come together as our Catholic Village here in Peachtree Corners. If you want to meet other young Catholics and families, make lasting friendships, and have your kids meet other Catholic kids, then this is the ministry for you!

We plan to gather for Sunday pot-luck lunches in the Parish Hall on a monthly basis. Food will be provided by the Village (i.e. all of us attending).  This is a great way to get involved and start to build stronger parish connections. We hope to have fun, grow in relationship with one another, and just enjoy life. Not to mention, it’s an easy and fun way to have a leisurely Sunday lunch!

Fraternus group forming at MOQ

Fraternus Chapter forming at MOQ!

What if there was a sure way to develop men of virtue?
The great news is we have a unique opportunity at Mary Our Queen parish,
and it’s called Fraternus.

“Fraternus is a Catholic brotherhood for all ages (beginning at grade 5 through adulthood). For over a decade Fraternus has been recovering the lost art of mentoring, harnessing the power of brotherly men and fathers and teaching the virtues rooted in Christ as the path to authentic manliness.”
We invite all men to join us for an informational meeting covering an very informative overview of Fraternus and the vision to start a Fraternus chapter
in the Archdiocese of Atlanta. Read more about Fraternus through their website: https://fraternus.net/
