On Thursday Bishop Alan and Simon Moules conducted a zoom training event for all the priests and deacons of our deanery. We are learning how best to use Zoom. But the two presenters brought us up to date on developments in safeguarding the vulnerable in our country. In 2019-20 there have been two rigorous Investigations – the so-called IICSA ordered by Parliament and another led by Ian Elliott and ordered by our bishops. There is reorganisation of the management in progress to obey the several recommendations coming from the two Investigations. As far as we priests are concerned the zoom served as the mandatory annual training in which we must engage. Nicky Crowther meantime is warming to her task as parish safeguarding rep.
