Safeguarding Children
Our Parish continues to implement the Diocesan Policy on Child Safeguarding and Protection.
The Policy and related procedures are implemented by the various Parish Groups who deal with children and vulnerable adults.
The Policy Statement is prominently displayed outside the Parish Office.

Policy Statement
The Archdiocese of Dublin and the Parish of St. Canice's and St. Margaret's value and encourage the participation of children and young people in parish liturgies and in Diocesan activities in order to enhance their spiritual, physical, emotional, intellectual and social development.  We recognise the dignity and rights of all children and are committed to ensuring their protection from all forms of abuse.
This is a commitment binding on all priests and on those who work in our Diocesan offices and agencies, and in our parishes.  It extends to all the many and varied ways that children share in the life of the Church in our Diocese.
