Our Lady of Hope, Saint Luke, and the Archdiocese of Baltimore is dedicated to the protection of children and youth.  In addition to screening all volunteers before they are able to serve in any ministry, the Archdiocese also requires each parish and school to provide Family Life education each year.  This program is designed to be age appropriate, and focuses on right relationships, discovering whom God called you to be, and helping to educate children about safe environments. 

 

While each location is required to present this program, parents/guardians are given options for this program based on their preferences.  Parents/guardians are able to homeschool, opt-in, and opt-out of the Family Life program.  Each family will receive a copy of a declination page for each child they have registered in the program.  Parents are asked to return this form to the Faith Formation office no later than December 20.  For students that have not returned the form, they will be excused from class during the Family Life program during Faith Formation classes.
