Cardinal John asks that pastoral team members, pastoral council members, parish office administrators/secretaries, and all volunteers working with children, young people, or adults who may be vulnerable attend this workshop.
Safeguarding is ensuring we have a culture and environment where the safety of children, young people and adults is paramount. Safeguarding is about the physical, emotional, spiritual and sexual safety of everyone. Safeguarding is extending child protection to include adult protection.

National Day of Prayer for Children
Mar 3 – Mar 4 all-day

On this day, we pray for our children – for those facing abortion, for children who are neglected and abused, those trafficked for sex and work, and for children living with violence.

Lord Jesus, thank you that you take children into your arms and bless them.
May every child know the deep peace and love of being held close to you.
We especially ask you to protect all unborn
children who are impoverished, neglected, and abused.
May we your people open our hearts to bring compassion into their lives.
Help us to support and encourage families
and communities in the love and protection of their children.
May children everywhere grow up feeling accepted, safe, and loved.
Amen.
