The Dublin Diocese Safeguarding procedures include that all parish volunteers avail of a session of safeguarding training. Parish volunteers include the following: Ministers of the Word and Eucharist, Altar Society and Church Cleaners, Finance Committee (incl. counters, church & street collectors), Liturgy Committee, Parish Pastoral Council, Sacristans and other parish volunteers.
The training evenings for safeguarding will take place on Tuesday 18th and Thursday 20th of September at 7.30 p.m. Safeguarding is of the utmost importance and we ask each parish volunteer to register for one of the nights. A sign-on list is available in the sacristy. Safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults in the church is everybody’s responsibility but is a particular responsibility for those who in some way are seen as representing the church.
