Safeguarding Children

Our young parishioners are invited to join the Children’s Liturgy during Mass on Sunday mornings in both Churches.

In line with Safeguarding guidelines Children will be given a consent form which we would ask parents/guardians to complete and return to the leaders over the next few weeks.  Also, all leaders and helpers will be obliged to comply with Garda Vetting obligations.


With Safeguarding Children in mind, we would like to remind parishioners that our Parish Safeguarding Representatives are Carol McKiernan and Stephen Leonard.  Carol and Stephen can be contacted, in strict confidence, on 01-8412647.


The Meath Diocesan Designated Liason Person (DLP) is Marie O’Sullivan.  Marie can be contacted at 083-3175742 or by e-mail at
