The emotional, physical and spiritual safety, well-being and dignity of all people is an integral part of the teachings and values of the Catholic Church.
The Diocese is wholly committed to ensuring the safety, well-being, and dignity of all children and vulnerable adults, and acknowledges its important legal, moral and spiritual responsibility to create a safe and nurturing environment for them.
The community has very clear expectations in matters relating to child protection and expects children and vulnerable adults will be protected from all forms of harm including sexual, physical and psychological harm, ill-treatment and neglect.
The Diocese supports these expectations and strives to promote the safety and protection of children and other vulnerable persons in its care.
