Here in Sandyford Parish we value and encourage the participation of children and young people in Parish liturgies and activities.  Safeguarding is about creating an environment which facilitates such involvement so that children can grow strong in their faith as they experience the love of Jesus in His Church.  Everyone who ministers in our parish is a representative of the Church and must observe safeguarding practices and guidelines.  Good safeguarding practice is integral to ministry.  It is not an optional extra.
“Families need to know that the Church is making every effort to protect their children”
Pope Francis
