Safeguarding Day;  Saturday 28 September,


Safeguarding must be approached responsibly.

We are grateful to Bernadette Starak (tel 711605), our parish safeguarding representative, who should be consulted if vulnerable people are felt to be at risk in any way. 

On Saturday 28th September, the Diocese is organising a Safeguarding Day at Our Lady & Saint Etheldreda, Newmarket, which all are welcome to attend. 

Issues to be raised include: 

  • spiritual abuse;
  • response to disclosures; and
  • building healthy Christian cultures. 

The day begins at 10 for 10.30 am and ends around 4 pm.  Mass will be celebrated by Bishop Alan at 12 noon, followed by a buffet lunch. 

Please let Fr Martin know if you wish to attend: the organisers need contact details of all attendees for catering purposes.
