What to Expect
CMG Connect training replaces VIRTUS and should take approximately one hour to watch all three videos and answer the questions. You do not have to complete all the training modules at once. You can take your time and work at your own pace! Don’t have a computer? Feel free to stop by the office at 1010 35th Street to complete your training at the church.

For questions, please call the parish office at 409-762-9646.
