Bliain an Chreidimh – Our Patron Saints Laochra an Chreidimh No. 73.
Naomh Aindriú: Phioc mé Aindriú mar gurbh duine cróga a bhí ann agus toisc a chreideamh láidir. Rugadh Naomh Aindriú i Bethsaida in aice le aigén Galilee. Ba iascaireacht an slí bheatha a bhí aige ar dtúis. Chuir sé a dhearthair Naomh Peadar in aithne do Íosa Críost. Bhí an beirt acu mar dheisceabail ag Íosa as san amach. Sa teanga gréigeach cialaíonn Aindriú – fearúil, cróga agus laochas. Gabhadh é mar gheall ar a Chreideamh. Céasadh é ar chros le cruth X air. Is Naomh Phátrún é ar iascairí, ceannathóirí éisc agus déantóirí Ropaí.
Deirtear go dtóg sé dhá lá uaidh bás a fháil agus go dthug sé an dá lá san ag teagasc ón gcrois. Fuair sé bás sa bhliain 60A.D. (Maxim – Scoil an Ghleanna)

Review of Safeguarding in the Diocese of Kerry
Tuesday 9th December saw the publication of the Review of Safeguarding in the Diocese of Kerry. The report is welcomed by Bishop Ray Browne who has given a firm commitment to implement the report’s recommendations.
“I welcome and fully accept the findings and recommendations of the NBSCCCI Review of Safeguarding Practice in the Diocese of Kerry which we publish today. I want to start by calling to mind all people everywhere who were abused as children and particularly where that abuse occurred in the Church within the Diocese of Kerry. Their suffering past and present is truly horrific. Abuse of a child in any form is evil. It is a serious crime and a grave sin. It has caused incalculable, lifelong damage to the lives of innocent children and their families. Such abuse is even more disgraceful when it is perpetrated by a person who holds a position of trust in the Christian community; by a person who professes a Gospel which speaks of love, justice and care for all, including the most vulnerable in society.
To any person who has been abused by a priest or anyone else in the Diocese of Kerry, and to their families and friends, I want to express my sincere sorrow and regret that such crimes were committed. I have met and listened to survivors of abuse and I am horrified at the abuse they have suffered and how it has profoundly affected their lives.
I encourage anyone who has been abused as a child to report the matter to the Health Service Executive, An Garda Síochána or the Diocese, seeking support and help. The publication of today’s Review, details an independent objective assessment of current safeguarding practice in the Diocese of Kerry. It documents the progress the Diocese has made in terms of establishing robust safeguarding policies and procedures. These proactive safeguarding measures endeavour to guarantee that all Church activities within our Diocese are a safe place for children to be involved. They also ensure that complaints or concerns with regard to child abuse are dealt with in a prompt, sensitive and professional manner. They are always dealt with in conjunction with the HSE and An Garda Síochána. I take this opportunity to thank all the people who have been involved in the safeguarding structures in our Diocese…
As I make public this Review today I take this opportunity to invite and encourage every person in the Diocese to join me in renewing our commitment to always uphold and work for the highest standards in child safeguarding.” 10th December 2013
