Protecting God’s People

As God’s people, we are called to celebrate, promote, and when necessary to defend the life and dignity of every person. We must treat everyone with respect, and do what we can to protect others from harm. Suspected misconduct with minor by lay church personnel should be reported to the pastor of the parish, the principal of the school, or the head of the Catholic institution involved. Suspected misconduct with minor by a priest, deacon, or rligious should be reported directly to the Bishop or Vicar General (P.O. Box 2279)
