Reporting Suspected Abuse
The Catholic Diocese of Salina is committed to protecting children and young people. All clergy, staff, educators, and volunteers are educated on how to prevent child sexual abuse, how to recognize sex offender behaviors, and how to create safe environments for children and young people in our parishes, schools and community.
Anyone working or volunteering in a Catholic parish or school, who knows or has reason to believe that a minor or vulnerable adult is or has been abused or neglected, please report to proper civil authorities/law enforcement as soon as possible.
The Diocese of Salina’s Victim Assistance Coordinator is available to help you or anyone who has been abused or victimized by someone representing the Catholic Church. We will listen to your needs and support you. We will help you make a formal complaint and arrange a personal meeting with the bishop or his delegate, if desired. We offer community resources, counseling for individual and families, and recognize the needs of parishes, schools, and other entities who may have been affected.
