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.


Please see Notice Boards for the latest Safeguarding Newsletter.
