Safe & Sacred

posted Mar 5, 2018, 12:48 PM by Bernard Sheridan

Hello Volunteers! 


We appreciate all the work that you do to serve our various ministries. Our Archbishop has issued an announcement regarding Safe and Sacred training and background checks for those who volunteer for the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.  


"As a Church, we cherish life and seek to protect the most vulnerable among us from harm. As part of this commitment, all clergy, employees, and volunteers who have contact with children have been required to complete Safe and Sacred child protection training and a background check every 3 years. Thank you for your involvement in and support of this important process to safeguard children in our care.


We recognize, however, that it takes the efforts of a whole community to protect children, and we want as many adults as possible to complete this important training on how to recognize and report behaviors that may cause harm. In addition, our commitment to protecting the vulnerable among us extends to other people who may be at risk, including the elderly and people with developmental disabilities.



Therefore, effective July 1, 2018, all volunteers at parishes, schools, and agencies of the archdiocese must complete Safe and Sacred training, which includes our code of conduct and background check. We believe that there is great benefit from every volunteer understanding behaviors that create potential risk to others as well as ways to report concerns. Also, this new policy will ensure that every volunteer who interacts with vulnerable adults has completed a background check.


Thank you in advance for your assistance and leadership in implementing this policy. Please contact Human Resources at (317) 236-1594, {800) 382-9836, ext. 1594, or with any questions or suggestions.


May God abundantly bless you this Lenten season."


Also feel free to contact Scott with the Office of Marriage and Family Life or BrieAnne with the Office of Human Life and Dignity with any concerns or questions.

2017 Trunk-or-Treat

posted Oct 30, 2017, 11:23 AM by Bernard Sheridan

Thanks to everyone who visited and helped with our Third Annual Trunk-or-Treat! We had an amazing turnout, despite the chilly (but dry) weather. The trunks were very inventive, and the games put on by the OLG Youth Group were a big hit with the kids. We hope to see you there next year--we'd love to have about a dozen more trunks and the Fourth Annual Event!

Special thanks go to Jim Flanigan, who provided the hayride, Patty Schnarr, who organized the games and crafts, and Dave Renick, who brought the hot dogs and cider.

We had perfect weather and a great turnout (about 110 kids) for the 23rd Annual Knights of Columbus - Council 6138 Easter Egg Hunt on the OLG south field Saturday morning. Thanks to all our brother Knights who volunteered and those who donated canned and boxed goods to the OLG food pantry!

Evangelization – Knights in Action

posted Oct 18, 2016, 7:49 AM by Bernard Sheridan

Dave, Tim, and Jamison, three Knights from council 6138, started evangelizing in the park in Greenwood and were surprised at the results. Most people accepted a Miraculous Medal and listened to an explanation, and some were open to more of a conversation about the faith.

We met a nice family from St. Barnabas who have been learning to pray the rosary at home.  Each took a rosary, a medal, and a guide to praying the rosary.

We met a Hindu man who at first was not interested, but when approached a second time we were able to find common ground and he was open to hearing about Christ and his church. He left with a medal and a card so he could contact us.

A fallen away catholic who had not been to mass since she left catholic school shared with us how she had been trying different churches and was not happy with them. She said she would consider coming to mass with us and took some pamphlets about returning to the Church.

Shirley was at first hesitant about the medal because she was more interested in Jesus than Mary, but she was open to discussion about how Mary points us to Jesus. She was so touched that we offered to pray with her, and we all prayed together for her son Alex. She left with some information about Mary and the Catholic faith, and a card to get in contact with us.

Overall the first day out was a success, and we cannot wait to do it again.
