The ongoing need for healing and reconciliation of those who have experienced sexual abuse is essential for the health of the Body of Christ. The Diocese of Victoria is committed to further responsibility, accountability and transparency in matters of sexual abuse in order to facilitate healing and justice for victim-survivors.

As such, two Independent Reporting Agencies have been contracted to receive reports of current or historical sexual abuse by a member of the Diocese (clergy, religious, employees, or volunteers) via secure and confidential platforms, which will further assist in contacting the appropriate authorities and access counselling services.

For more information on how to report Sexual Abuse, please click HERE or on the red button above.
