Advent Safeguarding Message 2019

Arising from the preparations for our Diocesan Assembly 2020 it is very clear that ‘family’ is a central concern for people. Advent is a time of preparation to celebrate the beginnings of a special family, ‘the Holy Family’ of Mary and Joseph and Jesus. Special, as it is the place where the Son of God came among us. Special also, because it is like any other family with its mixtures of joys and sorrows, happiness and burdens. As a local Church we work towards having safe environments for children in our activities. Places where parents can be reassured their children will be safe, treated with respect and valued. Many are involved at parish and diocesan level to maintain these standards. I thank you for your vigilance and your commitment to making our Church as safe as possible for children.

I encourage anyone with concerns regarding the safety of children or anyone who suffered in the past to contact our Designated Liaison Person, Sean Leydon (087-7431649) or our Deputy Designated Liaison Person, Róisín O’Doherty (087-7057516).
