In November, four Rosminian Fathers received training in Child Safeguarding. They were Fr. James Browne I.C., Chaplain to Childvision, Drumcondra, Co. Dublin and the Rosminian Retreat and Conference Centre, Glencomeragh, Co. Tipperary, Fr. James Flynn I.C., Chaplain to Childvision, Drumcondra, Co. Dublin, Fr. PJ Fagan I.C., Chaplain to St. Joseph’s Special School, Ferryhouse, Co. Tipperary, and Fr. Emilian Kibiriti I.C, Vocations Fundraiser.
The training day was a joint initiative with the Jesuits and was delivered by Mr. Cormac Ryan and Mr. Joe Greenan on behalf of the National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church (NBSCCC). Areas of focus included safeguarding and the role of the safeguarding representative, the Three R’s: Recognising, Responding, Reporting, working safely with children, and the seven safeguarding standards of the Catholic Church.
Participants found the day to be rewarding and informative, with good levels of discussion and engagement with a range of challenging topics.
The Rosminian Fathers are committed to promoting the safeguarding and protection of children in all aspects of their ministry and this training will continue to further that goal.
