Child Safeguarding and Protection Policy

We in the parish of St. Patrick’s Ringsend value and encourage the participation of children and young people in parish liturgies and in activities that enhance their spiritual, physical, emotional and social development.

We recognise and uphold the dignity and rights of all children and young people and are committed to their protection and support in a way that promotes their human dignity and integrity as children of God.

In keeping with this we will work to do all in our power to create safe environments for children and young people in order to secure their protection from physical, sexual and emotional abuse and enable their full participation in the life of the Church.
