Safe Environment

The Archdiocese of New Orleans has implemented VIRTUS® programs as its new comprehensive safe environment training platform for adults and children. The included Protecting God’s Children® Program will be the official training program for employees and volunteers.

The VIRTUS Online Database is an online portal that provides access to your safe environment account. All archdiocesan users will have access to their previous training records within the database. If you had an existing account on CMG, your USERNAME is the same. Please use it rather than creating a new account. When it is time for you to complete a training document, to obtain recertification training, or to have a background check conducted, you will receive an email notification from the VIRTUS website to access your account. The system will automatically refer all users to the background check portal as necessary.

08/2023: All staff and volunteers must log-in to the new system to verify their information is correct and to review and acknowledge the updated policies for the protection of children, youth and vulnerable adults.

If you are new to VIRTUS® and planning to volunteer at OLL School, make sure you select Our Lady of the Lake SCHOOL (Mandeville) as your primary location when you register. Do NOT select Our Lady of the Lake Church (Mandeville).
