DOMINICAN ORDER AN APOLOGY.
We accept that the Dominican Order did not expose any children in its care to risk of sexual assault as a result and did not seek to conceal such risk from persons availing of the facilities offered by the Order. Any suggestion that the Dominican Order is unfit to have responsibility for the care of children is entirely unfounded. Under the leadership of its Provincial, Fr Gearoid Manning O.P., the Dominican Order observes the highest standards in ensuring the protection of children in their care.
We very much regret any distress or embarrassment caused to the Dominican Order and to Fr Manning O.P., and take this opportunity to apologise for our error. As a mark of our regret we have agreed to make a donation to a charity nominated by the Dominican Order: The Lucy Faithfull Foundation for its UK and Ireland project "Stop it Now".
