Child Safe Policy

At St Dominic’s we hold the care, safety and wellbeing of children and young people as a central and fundamental responsibility of our parish. Our commitment is drawn from and inherent in the teaching and mission of Jesus Christ, with love, justice and the sanctity of each human person at the heart of the gospel (CAM Commitment Statement to Child Safety).

“St Dominic always carried with him the Gospel According to Matthew, in which we read Jesus’ words: ‘I tell you solemnly, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.’ As imitators of St Dominic, we reverence the likeness of the kingdom of God in our children.”

The Church’s social doctrine constantly points out the need to respect the dignity of children. ‘In the family, which is a community of persons, special attention must be devoted to the children by developing a profound esteem for their personal dignity, and a great respect and generous concern for their rights’ (Apostolic Exhortation, Familiaris Consortio, 26). Indeed, it was Jesus who, when his disciples were arguing among themselves about who was the greatest, directed his attention to a little child and said to his disciples, ‘Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me’ (Mark 9.37).
