Child Protection Policy*

*Full Text available from Parish Office or can be downloaded here

We in St Patrick’s Parish, Monkstown, 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 recognize the dignity and rights of all children and are committed to their protection and support.  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 and enable their full participation in the life of the Church.
