A Note From the Director

This week we learned about St. Patrick and how he taught people the Holy Trinity. In Music we listened to a song written by St. Katharine Drexel and played a real xylophone. We heard the story of the found sheep in Catechesis of the Good Shepherd and started preparing our box cars in Art for our parade happening April 22nd (more information coming soon).

Marquette and ECDC will be closed the week of March 14th for Spring Break. School resumes on Monday, March 21st.

Volunteering and VIRTUS

Each year, we rely on volunteers to help support classroom and school activities, field trips, fundraising activities, athletics and much more. Volunteers play a critical role at Marquette, and we appreciate your dedication, time and talent.

What you need to do:

  • First, VIRTUS Child & Youth Protection Requirements have three components: 1.) the background check submission 2.) adherence to policies, procedures, and ethical standards, and 3.) the child & youth protection education training. Each component needs to be renewed every five years.

  • Registration for First-time Users:
    • Visit
    • Select “First-Time Registrant” to create an online VIRTUS account.
    • Follow the onscreen step-by-step instructions for completing the process. We require all volunteers to start this process no later than two week before the date of volunteering.


  • Update Existing Account:
    • Registered volunteers are encouraged to login at the beginning of every school year to ensure that all personal information is correct. Upon login, your account will prompt you to complete any necessary requirements. Automated emails are sent through VIRTUS approximately one week before they expire. Please ensure that the registered email address is correct.
