Update on Virtus’ Protecting God’s Children programme

Participants at the December 1 Virtus session at Our Lady of Lourdes RC Church, Maraval.

From the Archdiocesan Family Life Commission

Virtus’ Protecting God’s Children (PGC) is a four-hour introductory workshop designed to raise awareness about the reality of child sexual abuse.

Through videos and facilitated group discussion format, the session helps participants become more familiar with the issues and myths surrounding child sexual abuse; signs of sexual abuse in children; behavioural patterns of perpetrators; steps the Church is taking to prevent future abuse; and a plan of action for adults to remain watchful for would-be perpetrators.
