“Let’s Be Honest”

A Deanery Service to Acknowledge the Pain of Abuse

Thursday 27th June 2019 – 7.00pm-8.00pm

Holy Rood, George Street, Barnsley, S70 1AX

“A church that does not listen…cannot be credible, especially for the young who will inevitably turn away rather than approach”

Pope Francis 3rd October 2018

This service is being held to acknowledge the pain of abuse by setting out what our response as a Church should be for the reality of abuse in society and within the Church community.

Everyone is welcome to join us for prayer, hymns, readings and reflections.  Refreshments will be provided after the service.

There will be an opportunity to speak to someone if required.  Please contact Fr. Damian for more information. Contact details for national organisations will also be available at the service.

Further help and support can be provided by the Diocesan Safeguarding Office, please contact: 0114 2566453 or email:
