Parish Child Safe­guard­ing Pol­icy: Again many thanks to all who at­tended our Child Safe­guard­ing night last Tues­day week. About 120 par­tic­i­pated over the two nights which is a great sign of in­volve­ment in our com­bined parishes. We note some were un­able to at­tend but some also did not re­spond to the call or did not turn up. Last Tues­day night some peo­ple in at­ten­dance did not re­ceive the Ap­pli­ca­tion Form for Garda Vet­ting. In the com­ing weeks we will send these out to those in at­ten­dance so don’t worry if you re­ceive a sec­ond you need only re­turn one. Those who did not at­tend one of the train­ing nights will also be sent Garda Vet­ting Form and will be given a date for a train­ing night in Septem­ber. Fail­ing to com­plete Garda Vet­ting or to at­tend a train­ing night means you are step­ping out of min­istry.
