Misconduct Reporting

As people of God, fully acknowledging God’s sovereignty, we recognize that we fail to meet our obligations to God and our obligations to one another based on the primary commandments of our Lord, Jesus Christ – the commandments to “love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind” and to “love thy neighbor as thyself.” (Matthew 22: 36-40)

We are required to interact and treat one another with the love of God. However, situations arise in which we fail to recognize the image of God in others. We may manipulate power imbalances for our own gain or benefit. We may, out of ignorance or our own brokenness, trespass against another’s reasonable expectations for right treatment. The harm created by our failures can have a shattering effect on others, on our communities, and on ourselves. Because of God’s unequivocal commandment, and accepting that the above actions can occur, we have established a Misconduct Reporting Office to receive reports of suspected misconduct.

 

Misconduct can take many forms including but not limited to: (a) questionable or improper accounting or auditing practices, (b) suspected unlawful conduct, (c) violations or suspected violations of Church or Diocesan policies or Canons (d) any observed or suspected verbal or emotional abuse, and (e) any suspected sexual misconduct (collectively referred to as “Concerns” from this point forward).

 

The Misconduct Reporting Office is intended to encourage and enable individuals to report Concerns for prompt internal inquiry and appropriate action.

There are three ways to report a Concern.
