Introduction to Safeguarding

The Catholic Church of New Zealand has been reflecting upon the impact of abuse, what we can learn, and how we can move forward. Pope Francis has said,

“The Church loves all her children like a loving mother, and cares for all and protects with a special affection those who are smallest and defenseless. This is a duty that Christ himself entrusted to the entire Christian community as a whole. Aware of this, the Church is especially vigilant in protecting children and vulnerable adults.”

This is the foundation of Safeguarding. This is the place from which we will build a culture within our communities where we all take responsibility for our thoughts and actions; a culture in which we live out the gospel values of love, dignity and justice.

The Diocese of Palmerston North is committed to building a sound culture of Safeguarding. As such, it is mandated that everyone who does the work of the Church undertakes Safeguarding training. If you are involved in a ministry or service for the Church, whether you are paid or a volunteer, you need to come along to a Safeguarding Workshop. If you have not yet done Safeguarding Training, or you have not done a refresher in the last 12 months, please book into the next workshop that suits you. If you have any questions regarding Safeguarding training, please contact Matt Balm, Safeguarding Officer for the Diocese of Palmerston North on 021 2789567

Session Timetable: Wednesday 21st April

St Joseph’s Supper Room 10am – 11.30am

Our Lady Help of Christians 5.30pm – 7pm

All volunteers are invited to attend this workshop, as policies have been updated since 2019.
