Diocese of Erie Policies on the Protection of Children and Youth
The Diocese of Erie, along with all dioceses of the United States, has policies and procedures in place to address the national problem of child abuse and to aid in creating safe environments.To see what the Diocese of Erie is doing to help create safe environments, check out http://www.eriercd.org/protectyouth.htm
Child Protection and Creating Safe Environments
Online Safety Tips for Parents & Kids: Instruct your children to never give out personal information online. This includes their address, telephone number, the name or location of their school, or their parents' names. They also need to be careful of any photos they might post. A simple picture of your daughter in a cheerleading uniform, standing in front of your house, could provide enough information for a stranger to physically locate her. Online predators have ways to innocently ask simple questions over a period of time that gives them enough information to know who children are and where they live.

Baptisms are scheduled during Saturday 5:30 pm Mass or the Sunday 10:30 am Mass or at Noon on Sunday.
Parents baptizing their first child are required to take a Parent Baptism Class. Our next PARENT BAPTISM CLASS is scheduled for Tuesday, December 19 at 7 pm in the parish office. Call the Religious Education office to inquire.
At least one Godparent must be a confirmed Catholic, in good standing with the Church (if married, they must be in a valid Catholic marriage), who can obtain a sponsor letter from their parish.
