Totino-Grace adheres to the employee and volunteer requirements outlined by the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis.

All interested Totino-Grace volunteers should first contact Mrs. JoAnn Brenk for instructions and guidelines prior to completing the Essential 3 requirements.

  • Safe Environment Training: VIRTUS Online Protecting God’s Children and Saint Paul-Minneapolis Reporting Suspected Child Abuse is a 75-minute online awareness training that provides information on the protection of children.
  • Background check: This important screening is run by an archdiocese-approved agency and provides criminal history.
  • Archdiocesan Code of Conduct: Volunteers must acknowledge, understand, and agree to the principles and standards outlined in the applicable code of conduct.


Employees and volunteers who have completed the Essential 3 at Totino-Grace or another archdiocesan organization more than three years ago must:

  • Complete a background recheck
  • Review and sign the applicable Archdiocesan Code of Conduct
  • Complete the assigned VIRTUS online training videos
