Child and Youth Protection
Under Maryland law any person who has reason to believe a child has been subjected to sexual abuse or other abuse must report the suspected abuse to civil authorities (local law enforcement or the local Department of Social Services Child Protective Services), even if the potential victim is now over 18 years old and even in cases where the alleged perpetrator is deceased.
More information can be found on the Archdiocesan Child and Youth Protection webpage, or call: 410-547-5348

VIRTUS Protecting God's Children (STAND)
Thank you for your interest in serving as a volunteer at Church of the Resurrection. Resurrection and the Archdiocese of Baltimore have a commitment to maintaining the trust of the faithful by providing our children and youth with safe environments characterized by healthy relationships. With our longstanding commitment in mind, all parishes and archdiocesan Catholic schools use VIRTUS, a compliance management system that allows all parishes and schools to facilitate compliance with archdiocesan child protection requirements for all volunteers who work with minors, employees, and clergy.
