They’ve spent more than 15 years working to end and prevent child and vulnerable adult abuse in the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas.

Now, Monica Lane and Franchiel Nyakatura are stepping up even more.

The women are “Virtus — Protecting God’s Children” volunteer facilitators.

They lead Virtus sessions at their respective parishes and others throughout the year for people in the archdiocese who teach, volunteer or work with children in some capacity.

These sessions are designed to educate people about the warning signs of abuse and what to do when someone poses a threat to children and vulnerable adults.
