Child Protection Sunday 2014 Event Details

‘Play your part’ is the theme for Child Protection Sunday on 14 September when each person in every Catholic Church community is asked to play their part in making our church a safe community for all by working to prevent abuse.

Our aim is to ensure that all communities and organisations within the Church are safe and enriching environments for people of all ages, with special concern for children, young people and vulnerable adults.

The Church's National Committee for Professional Standards has prepared resources, including Prayers of the Faithful and speaking notes, to help parish communities get involved with National Child Protection Week (7-13 September 2014).

As part of a suite of measures the Diocese of Parramatta has put in place to protect children and vulnerable people in its care, the Bishop of Parramatta, Most Rev Anthony Fisher OP, has established the Office for Safeguarding and Professional Standards.
