Safeguarding Children Policy Statement 2015

The Carmelite Sisters are committed to the Gospel values that cherish and safeguard children, as well as protecting them from physical, sexual and emotional harm. “Let the children come to me; do not stop them.”(Mt.19:14) We, the Discalced Carmelite Sisters (OCD) of St Joseph’s Carmelite Monastery, Upper Kilmacud Road, Stillorgan, Blackrock, follow the guidelines of the Dublin Archdiocesan Child Safeguarding policy and also that of our parish of St Laurence O’Toole, Kilmacud, both compliant with Children First. We strive to do everything in our power to safeguard the welfare of children with whom we come in contact. We belong to an enclosed monastic contemplative community and our outreach is only from within the monastic enclosure. We cherish and affirm that each child/person is a gift from God with an inherent right to dignity of life and bodily integrity which should be respected, nurtured and protected by all. As enclosed Contemplative Carmelites we recognise that the welfare of children and young people is of paramount importance and promotes their wellbeing. Whilst maintaining confidentiality in other areas, all allegations of child abuse, shared with any member of the Community shall be passed on to the relevant Statutory Authorities by the Designated Liaison Person.
