VIRTUS Transition - Important Reminders

October 26, 2017

As noted in the email notice sent Tuesday, 9/26/2017, Shield the Vulnerable will shut down their service this coming Tuesday, October 31, 2017.  Therefore, please be aware that a “blackout” period will take place from November 1 – December 31, 2017, during which time there will be no general access to Safe Environment background screening and training for our Diocese.  Please plan accordingly.

During this “blackout” period, if there is an urgent need for any of your clergy, employees or volunteers to complete the safe environment requirements, please contact Safe Environment, Director, Kristin Leandro, directly at (808) 203-6719 or kleandro@rcchawaii.org.  Kristin will do her best to assist you individually on a case-by-case basis.  

As originally stated in the email sent on Friday, 9/1/2017, please be aware that users’ status in meeting the 5-year re-screening/retraining requirement will not be affected by this transition to the VIRTUS Programs; the Diocese will retain the historical information currently maintained on the Shield the Vulnerable website and status reports will be provided to all locations prior to the January 1, 2018 cutover to VIRTUS.

Thank you for your continued support in our efforts to continuously improve our Safe Environment efforts.
