We are all Called to Protect!
On Jan. 1, 2002, the Catholic Diocese of Austin instated policies on Ethics and Integrity in Ministry (EIM) for all employees and those volunteers who minister to youth or vulnerable adults in the diocese. These policies were revised in August 2008. All clergy and paid staff, and all volunteers working with youth and vulnerable adults, at any parish or diocesan location, are required to complete an Application for Ministry and are required to attend an EIM workshop every three years.
To view more information on the Austin Diocese policies, requirements, guidelines and reporting abuse, please visit their website. There you will also locate the link to the EIM Application which allows for a background check and the schedule of EIM Workshops.
Thank you for the times in the past
when you have and in the future when you will,
protect a child or vulnerable person from sexual abuse.
