Child Protection Statement


St. Columba’s Church, Douglas.

St. Patrick’s Church, Rochestown.


We in the Parish of Douglas value and encourage the participation of children and young people in all parish activities that enhance their spiritual, physical, emotional and social development.

We recognize the dignity and rights of all children and are committed to ensuring their protection and support.

In keeping with this we will work to do all in our power to create safe environments for children and young people in order to secure their protection and enable their full participation in the life of the church.

The Parish Representatives will oversee the implementation of this with group leaders who work with children and young people in Church related activities.
