We in Swords parish are committed to the welfare of children and young people.

We value and encourage their participation and the participation of their parents/guardians in parish liturgies and activities that enhance their spiritual, physical, emotional and social development.

We recognise their dignity and rights and are committed to supporting and protecting them.

In keeping with this we will do all in our power to create a safe environment to enable their full participation in the life of the Church.
