Statement from Administration Regarding Prom Attire
Delone Catholic High School administration has the responsibility to ensure that Catholic values and moral integrity permeate every facet of the school's life and activity. On Sept. 8, 2014, the school released to all students and the community the formal and semi-formal dress code guidelines for the school year. The principles in these guidelines have remained steadfast for the past 23 years.  The only change this year is the requirement of young women to submit photos for review by prom moderators.

The early release of the guidelines, and the addition to them, was a proactive approach to prevent student's embarrassment and disappointment of being denied entrance to prom due to dress code infractions.

At the beginning of the school year, all parents of Delone Catholic students signed a Memorandum of Understanding, stating: 
While academic excellence and involvement in extracurricular activity (i.e. sports, clubs, etc.) are important, fidelity to the Catholic identity of the school is the fundamental priority. 
The administration will continue to work with students and parents on a proactive approach for future events. For additional inquires please directly contact the principal Dr. Maureen Thiec at 717-637-5969.

Susanna's Virtue - Read Full Article

Monday, March 23 – Monday of the Fifth Week of Lent

Daniel 13: 1-9, 15-17, 10-30, 33-62; Psalm 23: 1-6; John 8:12-20

Susanna’s Virtue

“If I yield, it will be my death; if I refuse, I cannot escape your power. Yet it is better for me to fall into your power without guilt than to sin before the Lord.” Daniel 13:22, 23

As Christians in the modern world we understand the temptations life presents to us. It is our duty to overlook them and run to the Lord when we need His presence most. This very concept can be seen in the first reading in the book of Daniel. As Susanna bathes in the privacy of her own garden, she is interrupted by two elderly men who have been lusting after her for some time. They tell her that she shall give into their desires or they will tell her maids that she had been with a young man while they were gone. Susanna bravely decides that she will not give into their worldly wants and professes her faith in her Lord. This ultimate act of bravery sets Susanna in the path toward the kingdom of Heaven. Although she sacrificed the trust of her maids with no fault of her own, she was faithful to the wishes of God. This Lenten season we must reflect of the virtue of Susanna and suppress worldly pleasures that seek to draw us back from a beautiful relationship with God. In the Psalms we are also told that there is no greater want than to be with God. God will always guide us along the right path. He never ceases to pour His overflowing love and guidance upon us and we must trust Him in all ways.

In the Gospel according to John, Jesus tells the Pharisees that he is the light of the world and whoever follows him will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. Jesus also tells them that they should not judge the other unless they know the just guidance of the Lord who will bring them validity. If we know Jesus, we also will know the Lord. This Lenten season we must give ourselves to the Lord in our entirety and understand our opportunity for relationship with Him. We can enhance the quality of our faith by knowing Jesus and therefore knowing the Father.

Delone Catholic is Latex-free!

Because of the increasing number of students who have allergic reactions to latex, through contact and through the air, Delone Catholic will use only products that are free from latex. We need the help of all parents and students to make sure that no latex balloon enters this school for birthday celebrations, for athletic senior recognition, for school dances or for any decoration throughout the school. For one of our students, this could be a life-threatening situation so everyone’s help is needed and appreciated.

Delone Catholic Practices Safety for those with Nut Allergies!

Items containing peanuts and other tree nuts may be brought to school for individual lunches, but we ask that after eating foods containing nuts, you thoroughly wash your hands and any surfaces you have come in contact with. When supplying food for group consumption, please refrain from bringing items containing nuts unless you also supply an alternative. Thank you for keeping the safety of all of our students in mind!
