Safe Environment Program Instructions

The Diocese of Charlotte has launched a new training program for clergy, employees and volunteers to enhance efforts to protect children and young people in all of our churches, schools and ministries. This new program, called CMG Connect, replaces the VIRTUS Online training program.

This change affects ALL priests, deacons, men and women religious, seminarians, lay employees, and volunteers who work or serve in the Charlotte diocese.

CMG Connect streamlines the diocese’s extensive Safe Environment program – combining background screening, onboarding and training on one
platform for everyone who ministers, works or volunteers at the diocese’s 92 parishes and missions, 20 schools, and its ministries and programs. CMG Connect is a service of Catholic Mutual Group, the leading provider of insurance to more than 125 (arch)dioceses in North America.


All former VIRTUS users have been assigned an account in CMG Connect. Please click on the relevant tab below for instructions on accessing
CMG Connect and certifying your compliance in the diocese’s Safe Environment program:
