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. All of us working together irrespective of our role have a responsibility to adhere to the Diocesan and Garda regulations for Child Safety and Welfare. – Fr Alex.
