COMMITMENT TO SAFEGUARDING
Mary, Queen of the Family Parish is committed to being a community of safeguarding that actively promotes the dignity and rights of children and of all other persons, particularly those who may be at risk.
Our parish aims to create a culture where safeguarding is a natural part of all planning, activities and decisions where all ministers and volunteers embrace safeguarding as part of their Christian mission.
As your shepherd, I adopt a zero-tolerance approach to child abuse. This parish will not tolerate any form of child abuse or sexual exploitation including the possession of or access to child pornography. As well as any other form of activity that diminishes the dignity of a child or adult at risk.
In all of our works, ministries and activities, we respond to the call of the Gospel to protect those who are vulnerable by fostering culture, education, systems, processes and environments where the safety and wellbeing of children and vulnerable people is paramount.
This is a shared responsibility of all employees and volunteers at Mary, Queen of the Family Parish. We must undertake to create a safe environment for both children and adults at risk of serious harm or abuse.
– Fr. Regie Lavilla
