Protection of God’s Children

At All Saints Catholic Church and School, keeping our children safe is our number one priority. We are committed to the Diocesan policy for the Safety and Protection of Children and Youth which requires that all clergy, employees and volunteers who have contact with children complete criminal background checks and attend a live training seminar “Protecting God’s Children.”

This training is helpful for all adults and parents and can be accessed using the website at www.virtus.org. The Diocese of Arlington provides numerous opportunities to attend training throughout the year. Questions can be addressed to Janet Smith, Coordinator of Child Protection, at (703) 368-4500 x158.

By becoming aware of the warning signs of abuse, by paying attention and working together, we create an environment at All Saints where our children and youth are protected and safe.
