Sexual Misconduct

Preventing / Responding / Reporting

Sexual misconduct by clergy or other Church ministers is never acceptable. We recognize the that it can have devastating consequences above all for victims and their families, and for the Church community at large.

In ministry with God’s people we must strive to create worship, education and work environments where we all treat each other with dignity , charity and respect.

Our obligation to minister in healthy and holy relationships flows from the mission give us by Jesus, in whose name we serve.

Sincerely in our Lord,

Most Reverend Robert W. McElroy

Bishop of San Diego
