Shield the Vulnerable to Shut Down Software, October 31, 2017

September 26, 2017

Please take a moment to read through this entire message as it contains an important update regarding the Diocese of Honolulu’s transition to the VIRTUS Programs as the provider for our adult Safe Environment training, and the concurrent shutdown of the Shield the Vulnerable website service. 

In light of the information we have received from Shield the Vulnerable, indicating that they will shut down their service at the end of October 2017, please be aware that the “blackout” period originally planned for December 2017 will now take place from November 1 – December 31, 2017, during which time there will be no general  access to Safe Environment background screenings 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 Kristin Leandro directly at (808) 203-6719 or kleandro@rcchawaii.org.  

Thank you for your patience and continued support as we move forward with this endeavor.
