LENT:  Ash Wednesday we began  the forty day journey toward the Triduum (The Three Days) with the annual discipline of fasting, praying and giving alms.  Ash Wednesday (February 14) and Good Friday (March 30) are days of fast and abstinence.  All Fridays in Lent (February 16, 23; March 2, 9, 16, 23) are days of abstinence.  FASTING refers to only one full meal, with two small meals and no eating otherwise for the day.  ABSTINENCE refers to not eating meat at all during the day.  All who have reached their 14th year are obliged to ABSTAIN.  The Church directs the holy FAST to all those in their 18th year until their 60th year (Canon 1252).  The ancient practice of fasting and abstaining can occur throughout other days in Lent.  This is not obligatory and can take a variety of forms distinct from food.

 


Youth Protection and Clearances for Volunteers  

     ALL VOLUNTEERS are required by the Diocese to have completed the Diocese Youth Protection Program and maintain a clearance every 5 years.

     ALL VOLUNTEERS having contact or responsibility for children have an additional set of requirements that were established by the PA Child Protective Services Law Mandates.  Please note the PA requirements are in addition to the Diocesan Youth Protection Program.

    Details regarding the Youth Protection Program and the Commonwealth requirements are posted on the OLV Catholic School website. Click here and you will be directed to the appropriate page.   

    If you are unsure of your current status or have questions, please email the Youth Protection Coordinator.
