Whats New
Pictured above Once again we recently opened our doors and invited passers by to come in and light a candle, write a prayer and take a piece of paper with a short scripture passage on it home with them.  In the one hour service 65 candles were lit, hymns were sung, and prayers were offered
Statement by the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, St Albans
We have received historic allegations, dating back several decades, that one of our priests based here at St Albans sexually abused some young people. The person against whom the allegations are made died several decades ago.  The Police and the Archdiocese have been informed of the allegations.
The Missionaries of the Sacred Heart fully accept and acknowledge the immense pain, harm and distress suffered by persons who have been abused as well as their families - and we encourage any person who has been abused to report it.
Anyone who wishes to make contact with us on this most important matter will receive our support. We appreciate how difficult it can be to come forward and share one’s own story of abuse.
We encourage people who have been abused to report the matter to the Police.  Should you wish to speak to a representative of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, you can contact our Safeguarding Manager, Mrs. Saoirse Fox (Email: , Irish Landline: +353 1 4906622,  Irish Mobile: +353 86 344 1707)
There is also an independent, confidential and free helpline providing professional support for people who have experienced sexual abuse in this parish provided by Towards Healing.  You can contact Margo or Cathy on 0800 0963315.  The helpline is open Monday to Thursday 11:00am - 8:00pm and Friday 11:00am - 6:00pm.
We want to assure everyone that the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart rigorously implement our child protection guidelines, which are fully compliant with official guidelines, here and at all our various centres.  It is of vital importance to us that the parish and all its activities are safe places for children and vulnerable people.
