Thought for the Week
Kind words are short and easy to speak,

but their echoes are truly endless. - Mother Teresa


SAFEGUARDING    Learning from the past. In his Ad Limina address to the Irish Bishops on 28th October 2006, Pope Benedict XVI stressed the need to

(i) establish the truth of what happened in the past;

(ii) to take whatever steps are necessary to prevent it from occurring again;

(iii) to ensure that the principles of justice are fully respected; and

(iv) above all, to bring healing to the victims and to all those affected by these egregious crimes.

As a church we commit to this journey of justice, truth, healing and abuse prevention.

Please remember ‘Safeguarding children is everybody’s responsibility’
