Safeguarding is Everyone's Responsibility

The Diocese of Broken Bay works to provide a culture of safety and care for children, young people and vulnerable adults in its care. Broken Bay is committed to maintaining a pastoral community that models the essential qualities of ethical and moral behaviour. The principles upon which this behaviour is founded include: Integrity, Commitment, Presence, Servant Leadership, Truth, Compassion, Wisdom and Dignity.

Everyone is expected to embrace and contribute to a culture safeguarding children and vulnerable adults.

The month of September is safeguarding awareness month in Broken Bay. At 7pm on Friday, 2 September at Our Lady of the Rosary Cathedral, Waitara, our annual Liturgy will reaffirm our commitment to keeping young people and vulnerable adults safe in our community. Everyone is welcome.
