By State Law enacted in 2014 all Volunteers who have frequent contact with children as well as paid employees and clergy need to have fingerprinting done. The agency for the PA Department of Human Services is called IdentoGo.  http://keepkidssafe.pa.gov/cs/groups/webcontent/documents/document/c_267908.pdf  The Service Code is 1KG738. If someone does not have access to the Internet, you can still schedule an appointment by calling 844-321-2101. WE MAINTAIN 100% COMPLIANCE WITH THE LAW ON THIS MATTER, many of whom are retired clergy.
