In September 2015 we invited the National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church in Ireland (NBSCCCI) to conduct a review of our Community’s child safeguarding policy and practice. We very much welcome the findings of the report on our Community which was published today and accept all its recommendations. We are completely willing and open to collaborating fully with the NBSCCCI into the future to further improve our child safeguarding practices, something to which we are strongly committed. We are deeply saddened that so many children have suffered as a consequence of abuse by priests and religious in the past and we continue to pray for all survivors of abuse and their families.

It should not be surprising that a light so enkindled,
so illuminating could not be kept from shining brilliantly
and giving clear light in the house of the Lord;
nor could a vessel filled with perfume be so hidden
that it would not emit its fragrance
and suffuse the Lord's house with a sweet aroma.
