Beginning July 1st, the Diocese of Toledo implemented a new on-line, one-stop registration program so that any adult who volunteers with our youth (at St. Michael School and through all parish activities) can complete their needed Protecting Youth requirements through an on-line system called VIRTUS. This requirement pertains to, but is not limited to, adults who volunteer with children in the lunchroom, Discipleship/FROGS, youth group, field trips, classroom helper, coaching, retreats, 8th grade trip, Scouts, nursery, prayer groups, choirs, festival, servers etc.
Effective immediately, any and all adults whose ministry includes any contact with children are expected to complete three (3) on-line components of Protecting Youth registration at VIRTUS which remain on-file for 5 years.
(1) reading and signing an electronic expectation form,
(2) completing a social security number based background check ($25) (through Fastrax) – which replaces fingerprinting (and was previously $50-$60). The parish has generously offered to cover the $25 fee for volunteers if that is necessary.
(3) completing Protecting God’s Children Online Awareness Session 3.0 (also available in Spanish) at no charge, which will take about 75 minutes (formerly the Shield the Vulnerable course was $6).
(If you had fingerprints and/or the Protecting Youth course completed within the last five years, those should still be on file, and should not need to be repeated for 5 years but you will still need to register on the VIRTUS system.)
Please contact Susan Campbell our St. Michael Compliance Officer as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org if your service in our parish includes ministry with children to learn all you need to complete your registration.
We'd like to have all this on file by December 31, 2016.

The purpose of the St. Michael Athletic Boosters Club is to support the Toledo Diocese CYO Athletic policies and procedures as they apply to the student athletes, coaches, and families of St. Michael the Archangel Parish.
The St. Michael Athletic Boosters Club supports our school's student athletes by providing uniforms, tournament fees, assisting in making cost-effective sports physicals available to every child and other key services.
We support CYO principles of fair play and good sportsmanship and embrace the philosophy that win or lose, athletics helps build character in youth.
The boosters typically meet the second Thursday of each month (August - May) at 6 p.m. in the St. Michael art room unless otherwise noted. Everyone is welcome to attend.
SMS Athletic Signs are silk screened and will last for years. This fundraiser helps pay for new uniforms and athlete fees, and the price is $20.00 per sign, which includes the stake for the ground. All of the signs except for SMS shield can be personalized with the athlete’s first or last name, the St. Michael name, or left blank.
