Code of Conduct

On May 28, 2019, Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller promulgated the Code of Conduct.  Church Personnel in our parishes, religious communities/institutes, schools, agencies, and youth serving agencies must exemplify Christian values and appropriate conduct. The Code of Conduct provides a set of standards for conduct in certain situations. Within the pretense or context of a ministry relationship, certain behaviors and situations are unacceptable. To ensure the proper monitoring of activities, especially those pertaining to youth and vulnerable adults, this Code of Conduct intends to establish a balance between encouraging positive and appropriate interactions and hindering inappropriate and/or potentially harmful or unsafe interactions. Establishing standards of conduct with this balance in mind assists in creating and maintaining environments where there is no opportunity for sexual misconduct or other harmful acts.
