Safeguarding children and young people: Our parish has an active and effective procedure that supports child protection.  Every volunteer/staff member who is directly involved with children in our parish needs a valid working with children card.  Our ministry leaders are the most important part of this process as they keep the office up to date with the names and details of new and inactive volunteers.  We have a data base to handle this. Many of our parish volunteers’ cards are due to expire in the New Year.  Please be proactive and complete a new WWC application so that you remain compliant.  All OLM volunteers working in ministries and directly associated with children need a WWC Card.  This is the LAW.  Ministry Leaders please help us by contacting the office when someone LEAVES or JOINS a ministry.  This is fully supported by Fr Cyprian, Fr Truc and our parish council.
