This is the Child Protection Policy of St John the Baptist Parish, Clontarf Road, Dublin 3.  It has been devised in accordance with the guidelines of the Dublin Archdiocese and current best practice.

The Archdiocese of Dublin and the Parish of Saint John the Baptist 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 recognize 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 all 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.
