On August 1, 2013 the Archdiocese of Indianapolis announced that

SAFE & SACRED would replace the VIRTUS Program

The Archdiocese of Indianapolis has initiated a convenient new online training program for adults on protecting children from harm. The training builds awareness of how to recognize and report physical abuse, emotional abuse, neglect, and child sexual abuse. Safe and Sacred offers broader content and easier access to training. The training is available in English and Spanish 24 hours per day, 7 days per week and takes about 45 minutes to complete and can be done in parts.  

All NEW clergy, religious, staff and volunteers must complete the Safe and Sacred Program BEFORE they begin their ministry.  The program can be accessed by following this link:
