The National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church in Ireland has launched a new series of videos on the Theology of Safeguarding.
Nine videos have been commissioned from theologians, scripture scholars and ethicists who live and work in Ireland, Italy and the United States. In month 10, October 2021, the National Board will host its National Conference on the theme ‘Towards a Theology of Safeguarding’ at which time the questions posed by the video contributors will be addressed.
The first video presentation is by Fr Hans Zollner SJ, founding President of the Centre for Child Protection and Professor at the Institute of Psychology at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome. He is member of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors and consultor to the Congregation for Clergy. He is honorary professor at Durham University, UK. Lectures and conferences have taken him to many countries on six continents.
In February the presentation will be delivered by Sr Nuala Kenny, followed by Dr Ethna Regan in March.
