Our May Procession this year will be after the 10:30 a.m. Mass on Sunday May 10th (Mothers Day) The procession will start with the recessional out of Church to the outside Mary statue. We will be led by the Knights of Columbus and our First Communicants. We will then crown Mary and pray a decade of the Rosary (5th decade of the Glorious Mysteries - Mary is Crowned Queen of Heaven.) Let us remember Mary, our Mother, especially during the month of May.
As part of our Catholic commitment to safe environments, the Archdiocese recently updated its policies and training curriculum for mandated reports of child abuse and neglect. These new policies reflect the Church's commitment to always do more, as well as a new Pennsylvania laws that go into effect on December 31,2014. All parish volunteers who have contact with children are mandated reporters.
Our parish volunteers who work with children will be informed about their responsibilities and how to properly report child abuse to ChildLine, PA's 24-hour child abuse reporting hotline. If you have any questions call Lori Miller @ 610-399-6936. Information is also available at www.childyouthprotection.org.
Msgr. Carroll reiterates the commitment of the parish and the Archdiocese to the prevention of abuse and supports those efforts by providing contacts and resources for additional information and refernce.
