The Catholic Church in Australia marks Safeguarding Sunday, on 12th September.
We pray for those who have been abused, their families and supporters. We recognise and apologise for the harm done by priests, religious and lay people in Church settings. We recommit to practices that support survivors and make the Catholic Church and its ministries the safest possible place for children and people at risk.
You can find out more about the Church’s work in this area at: www.catholic.org.au/safeguardingsunday
Resources, including for liturgical celebrations, are created to support local recognition. Please find below resources for Safeguarding Sunday 2021.
