Safe Environment

We know how important it is to take appropriate measures to protect children who participate in our parish activities. We are committed to complying with policies and procedures established by the Diocese of Pittsburgh for this purpose. Paid staff and volunteers who might come into contact with children in the course of their services within our parish are required to register in a central database and to complete the "Protecting God's Children" workshop.

Rose Velgich is the parish coordinator. Please contact her for more information. For those already registered, you may click here for a list of upcoming workshops in our diocese.
