The person receiving a report
of sexual abuse of a minor by Church personnel contacts the civil authorities first. The Pastor, Principal, or Administrator, should be notified next, who then notifies the Bishop or his designee within twenty-four hours. If the person accused is the pastor or administrator, the report is made directly by phone to 888-357-5330
after reports are made to civil authorities. In addition to the oral report, a written report (see Reporting form) is completed by the one receiving the allegation.
