We, in Killarney Parish, endorse the Kerry Diocesan Child Protection Policy. We encourage the participation of children and young people in church life and activities. It is important they feel that their contribution will enrich the church and that their voices will be heard and valued. It is also important to reassure them that their safety and wellbeing are paramount considerations at all times. The aim of this is to ensure the safety of children and young people, to enhance the work practices of church personnel and to reassure parents and guardians, as well as children themselves, that there is a commitment to best practice.
