Safeguarding Children

  dublindiocese.ie Updated June 2016

Our Parish safeguarding reps are: Mary Deans and Mary Frances Solan.

The Archdiocese of Dublin recognises and upholds the dignity and

rights of all children, is committed to ensuring their safety and

well being and will work in partnership with parents / guardians to

do this. The Archdiocese recognises each child as a gift from God,

and values and encourages the participation of children in all

activities that enhance their spiritual, physical, emotional,

intellectual and social development.

All diocesan personnel (including clergy, religious, staff and

volunteers) have a responsibility to safeguard children through

promoting their welfare, health and development in a safe and

caring environment that supports their best interests and prevents

abuse.

Your Parish Safeguarding Representatives Mary Deans and

Mary Frances Solan  are contactable through the parish office.
