Making sure that the whole parish is aware of the importance of safeguarding children and vulnerable adults
Promoting safe practices including articulating for others what is appropriate and inappropriate behaviour; and
Assisting the Parish Priest/Administrator in the implementation of the Archdiocesan Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults Policy in the Parish
