Latest News

Entries for August 2012

Anyone* (not previously approved) who coaches, volunteers, or any person who regularly has contact in any capacity with the children of Saint James needs to meet the following Archdiocese requirements and be approved before you can begin coaching, volunteering, etc.

(*NOTE: Anyone who has already been approved and been previously certified on the “Decree on Child Protection” is grandfathered into the program, BUT will eventually need to attend a “VIRTUS” Session before June, 30, 2014.)

These are: 1) that you attend a “VIRTUS” Protecting God’s Children Workshop and 2) *that you be fingerprinted and 3) the parish receives an approval letter from the Archdiocese. This could take 2-3 weeks for the parish to receive the results. *Per the new Archdiocese policy, ANY employee and/or volunteer must have a completed Archdiocese of Cincinnati Background Check Release Form signed by a designated Parish representative. You need to have this form with you or you will be required to pay cash on the spot before any of the OTHER fingerprinting sites will fingerprint you. You can stop by the Parish Office during business hours to pick up a form if you plan on being fingerprinted at another location. Other fingerprinting sites are listed on the Archdiocese Web Page. See our links page or go to:

Visit the parish's website at and click on the Parish Info tab, then the Archdiocese Child Protection Policy for fingerprinting days and times and instructions for preregistration for the VIRTUS class. Preregistration is required.  Saint James will be having a class for Saint James staff and/or parishioners only on Saturday, September 15 at 9:00 am in the Marian Room, located in the Parish Center Building.  For other class days, times, and locations, visit
