PA Child Protective Services Law (CPSL)
Thank you for volunteering at St. Agnes Parish. Your cooperation enables our parish to continue to serve the needs of our people and the community. The Diocese of Greensburg provides us with the clearance requirements for volunteering with children, young people, and vulnerable adults. These clearances meet and exceed the PA Child Protective Services Law (CPSL) and must be renewed every 5 years.
All volunteers at Saint Agnes completed this clearance process in 2015 meaning that the 5 year anniversary is upon us and for most of us, clearances have expired. Please begin your renewal process now (Spring 2020) if you were part of the original group of parishioners who completed clearances in the beginning.

Please turn in each certificate and/or clearance result to the St. Agnes office as you obtain it. If you have any questions, if you need to set up a time to use a computer at St. Agnes, or would like more personalized instructions, please contact the parish office at 724-863-2626. Note that if you became a parish volunteer after 2015, you have until your 5 year anniversary to renew.
Once again, thank you for your efforts at ensuring the safety of our children.
