The Armagh Diocesan Safeguarding Conference, which was held on two evenings, was an opportunity for the Diocesan Safeguarding Office to provide parishes with the latest updates to Parish Safeguarding Guidance and notify parishes of some recent developments in Safeguarding in the Catholic Church.
Further, those present had the opportunity to meet and hear from the Reid Family. Their personal, familial story of childhood trauma was inspiring. The aim was to motivate key individuals to work together in supporting those on their journey into wellbeing.
Thanks to the volunteers and staff of the Drumcree Pastoral Centre, Portadown and the Diocesan Pastoral Centre, Dundalk, and to all those who attended.
