Historic Abuse
Statement by the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, St Albans
We have received historic allegations, dating back several decades, that one of our priests based here at St Albans sexually abused some young people. The person against whom the allegations are made died several decades ago.  The Police and the Archdiocese have been informed of the allegations.
The Missionaries of the Sacred Heart fully accept and acknowledge the immense pain, harm and distress suffered by persons who have been abused as well as their families - and we encourage any person who has been abused to report it.
Anyone who wishes to make contact with us on this most important matter will receive our support. We appreciate how difficult it can be to come forward and share one’s own story of abuse.
We encourage people who have been abused to report the matter to the Police.  Should you wish to speak to a representative of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, you can contact our Safeguarding Manager, Mrs. Saoirse Fox (Email: , Irish Landline: +353 1 4906622,  Irish Mobile: +353 86 344 1707)
There is also an independent, confidential and free helpline providing professional support for people who have experienced sexual abuse in this parish provided by Towards Healing.  You can contact Margo or Cathy on 0800 0963315.  The helpline is open Mon - Thurs 11am - 8pm and Fri 11am - 6pm.
We want to assure everyone that the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart rigorously implement our child protection guidelines, which are fully compliant with official guidelines, here and at all our various centres.  It is of vital importance to us that the parish and all its activities are safe places for children and vulnerable people.
18th/19th November 2017, St Albans
Statement by the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, St Albans
We are understandably deeply disturbed and upset by false information being circulated around the parish regarding allegations of child sexual abuse against  Fr Tom Hewitt MSC.

We wish to reassure parishioners that there are no allegations, current or historic, against Fr Tom Hewitt MSC or indeed any other current member of the Parish Team in St Albans. Fr Hewitt is not being, and never has been, investigated by the police. As you can imagine, Fr Hewitt is deeply distressed by these false and defamatory accusations. These allegations are entirely untrue and have no basis whatever in fact.

The parish of St Albans and St Stephen, and the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, take any allegation of sexual abuse extremely seriously. If any person wishes to report an allegation of child sexual abuse they should do so to the police, or to the safeguarding manager for the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart and it will have our urgent and immediate attention.  

The Safeguarding Manager of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart is Mrs Saoirse Fox  +353 86 3441707
