High School Wolfe Pack

Posted June 20, 2017 By Mary Pettit

We Are and We Serve The Beloved

The crew is fresh back from the High School Wolfe Pack Mission Trip to Campton, KY where we served with Good Shepherd Catholic Church community to rebuild homes and relationships of the community.  Our crew of 40+ worked hard, played hard and reconnected with the good folks who welcome us each year to be a part of their lives.  Here is a snippet of some of the good times that we had after a hard day of work.  For more pictures and comments on the trip, check out our Facebook page!  Thanks to everyone for your committed service.

College social group


safe and sacred buttonThe Archdiocese of Indianapolis has initiated a convenient new online training program for adults on protecting children from harm. The training builds awareness of how to recognize and report physical abuse, emotional abuse, neglect, and child sexual abuse. Safe and Sacred replaces the Virtus program and offers broader content and easier access to training.

The training is available in English and Spanish 24 hours per day, 7 days per week at it takes about 45 minutes to complete and can be done in parts. As of August 1, 2013, all new clergy, employees, and volunteers who have contact with children must complete the Safe and Sacred program before beginning ministry, work, or volunteer service. Current clergy, employees, and volunteers will re-certify starting in January 2014.
