In 2000 he was transferred to Archbishop McCarthy High School while being in residence at Saint Boniface Church in Pembroke Pines. He took care of his parents as they were getting older, first “dad” then “mom,” taking a leave-of-absence from an assignment until his mom’s death in 2016. He was assigned to Saint David’s Church in 2016 and Saint Anthony Church on July 1, 2018.

Our staff here at San Pablo has undergone thorough training in the VIRTUS program in order to insure professional, appropriate behavior in the workplace and to create a safe environment for our parish.

The VIRTUS programs are a platform that provides the foundation, and also, the superstructure, of all the risk control (loss prevention/loss control) initiatives undertaken by National Catholic on behalf of its shareholders and the Church.

The VIRTUS programs constantly and consistently employ several elements as the cornerstone of their methodology. These are (summarized):

  • they target both institutional change, and also, individual behavior modification, with appropriate products/services.
  • they provide both reactive/responsive and proactive tools, often assembled as "toolkits," to address the exposure areas confronting our insureds.
  • they employ multiple modalities (written materials, web training modules, audiotapes, videotapes, training manuals, seminars, etc.), to reach our audience.
  • they utilize a "Think Tank" development model, including engagement of an Expert Consulting Team that assists with the development and implementation of our products/services.
  • they are "constructed" and deployed in phases or components (Phase I of the VIRTUS programs deals with child sexual abuse and other inappropriate sexual behavior; we intend for Phase II to address violence prevention/mitigation; etc.).
  • they exist as an ongoing process—phases are never "finished," but rather are continuously refined and updated, and constantly available.
  • all activities are designed to ensure a constant product/service "pipeline."
  • they seek and engage outstanding professional service providers for product development and training, whom we manage synergistically.
  • they are committed to measurable results and continuous improvement.
  • they adhere to a "best practices" standard.

Through the VIRTUS programs, we are committed and dedicated to the task of constantly providing National Catholic’s shareholders, and indeed the broader Church, with the absolute finest, most cost efficient, and effective risk control measures available anywhere.
