Child Protection Policy

Introduction

We in the Parish of Frankfield/Grange, Cork 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 and in particular in the life of our parish.

On Monday November 14th, 2011 Bishop John Buckley launched a revised policy document entitled Safeguarding Children in the Diocese of Cork and Ross.  To view this document please follow the link below.
