We hope you had a healthy, restful Easter break. We would like to communicate some information regarding spring sports’ fees for this year. While the news of the cancellation of all CYO spring sports is disappointing, we know it is an imperative action in order to keep us all protected. Consequently, the CYO has refunded your registration in full including all fees and cost of any shirts that may have been ordered. The reimbursement will be credited to your original means of payment. This credit should be posted to your account by the end of the week at the latest. Please check to see that it has been processed. Please direct any questions regarding refunds to George Estock email link is below.
Prayers for the continued health and safety of all our OLPH families,

Track is a short season which begins in April and ends mid May. Julie Dody will be leading the pack this season.
Practice for track and field will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays. All of the times and dates will follow. Practice will most likely start around the second week of March.
High School Students: Keep in mind - Track and Field is a great opportunity to earn your community service hours. What better way to cheer on your brother, sister or former classmate? The coaches appreciate the help when your schedules allow, especially on Saturday mornings.
Spring Soccer – Games will be played on Sundays, beginning in April and ending early June. The spring season is a time to get out and enjoy the weather, there are generally no practices and standings are not kept. Additional information will be provided by the coaches.

The Protecting God’s Children™ Program for Adults was purchased to educate every priest, employee, and volunteer who works with children about the harms of child sexual abuse and what they can do to prevent it. The Safe Environment Coordinator organizes the training sessions as well as administers the web-based online system that tracks who has been trained. The system provides follow-up information and reinforcement to facilitators and to participants who have been trained.
The Protecting God’s Children™ program is a three-hour video presentation. Any adult volunteer who comes into contact with children for more that 15 hours a year is required to attend this program. Workshops require PRE-registration. Past attendees are eligible to sign up for ongoing bulletins from Vitrus.
