Guardian Angels Parish has implemented the Archdiocesan Safeguarding Policy. We are committed to high standards of recruitment, screening and selection of all of our employees and volunteers and undertake intentional strategies to maintain a safe and healthy ministry environment for all.
STOPline Service STOPline is an independent commercial service that receives confidential information and reports about suspected abuse, serious misconduct and policy breaches by Archdiocesan personnel, including clergy, religious, employees and volunteers. The service also applies to Brisbane Catholic Education and Centacare Brisbane. STOPline is available to all Archdiocesan personnel, volunteers and the general community.
“The Church loves all her children like a loving mother, but cares for all and protects with a special affection those who are smallest and defenceless. This is the duty that Christ himself entrusted to the entire Christian community.” (Apostolic Letter issued ‘motu proprio’ by the Supreme Pontiff Francis, 4 June 2016)
Safeguarding Incident Report Form The Archdiocese is committed to fostering a culture where people are encouraged to raise concerns and can do so safely.The Archdiocese strongly encourages anyone who suspects criminal conduct by Archdiocesan personnel to report the matter directly to the Queensland Police Service.
WHS Incident Reporting Parishioners and visitors are reminded of the requirement to immediately report any health or safety incident, injury or damage that occurs within our Parish.
