This course reviews and explores the meaning of a number of historical anecdotes that have contributed to healing between previously warring nations, races and religious communities. It focuses on the action of individuals who rise above normal human nature to set an example of reconciliation as an alternative to revenge and reparation.

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.
