Child Protection Policy

We in the parish of Blessington 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 recognise the dignity and rights of all children and young people and are committed to their protection and support.

In keeping with this we will look 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.
