efforts to regain trust

child protection in irish churches

The child abuse scandals ridden church in Ireland now begins events in the church with drawing churchgoers' attention to the child protection policy, and the location where it hangs on the cold walls, near the entrance.

While the introduction of such policies and establishment of complaint hotlines might work in rebuilding people's trust, and even preventing child abuse from happening, it certainly leaves intact the systemic, institutional reasons behind the 'eventful' past of priests in Ireland.
