Safeguarding Children: Parish Policy

Policy Statement

Jesus said: “Where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” (Matthew 18: 19-20) Gathered in His name we, in the Parish of Saggart, Rathcoole and Brittas, value and encourage the participation of children and young people in parish liturgies and in activities that enhance their spiritual development. We recognise the dignity and rights of all children and are committed to their protection and support.

In keeping with this, we will work to do all in our power to create safe environments for children and young people, in order to secure their protection and enable their full participation in the life of the Church.
