This is the diocesan workplace bullying and harassment policy statement.
In order to provide a variety of services to the many parishes that make up our diocese we have turned to technology for assistance. The synod office has established an information sharing system that utilizes electronic mail, among other applications, as a primary communication medium between the synod office and the various parish administrative offices throughout our region. This policy sets out that system.
Guided by a Gospel imperitive to "be a community of truth, justice and mercy, compassion and reconciliation, mutual service and steadfast faithfulness," the diocesan Sexual Misconduct Policy sets out the principles, definitions and procedures used to respond to an allegation of sexual misconduct within the diocese.
We recognize the increasing influence of social media in the daily lives of those we minister to and with daily. For this reason, our diocese strives to be a leader in the responsible use of social media for the purpose of living into our vision and proclaiming the good news to the world. This policy was updated in 2019 and is for use at every level of our organization.
