Bishop’s Message for Safeguarding Sunday

Dear Parishioners,

I welcome this initiative to have an annual Safeguarding Sunday in our Diocese. Each year it will remind us all that the key to Safeguarding is good public awareness of the potential danger to children and the importance of good practice across the diocese. On this, our first Safeguarding Sunday event I, along with the Diocesan Safeguarding Committee want to say thanks to close to 200 people who have voluntarily worked for the safeguarding cause in the Diocese over the years. Special thanks to those who continue to serve at this time.

We also should never forget the hurt and damage caused to so many people who have been abused as children and the enormous impact this has on their lives. The Diocese of Kildare & Leighlin fully acknowledges the devastation caused by abuse and takes the role of establishing a safe environment for children and vulnerable adults within the church very seriously. The Safeguarding of Children involves all of us working together to ensure that children grow up with their right to dignity respected.

I thank and applaud all of you for making this possible.

Bishop Denis Nulty
