Thank you very much for accessing our archdiocesan hotline for reporting misconduct with children, Code of Conduct violations, and misuse of church funds and property. We are grateful for your assistance in working with us to ensure the safety of children and maintain the highest ethical and professional standards in all of our ministries.

The parishes, schools, agencies and other entities of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis are committed to the safety of children and to being good stewards of our resources. We are all responsible for ensuring that there is compliance with our teachings and our policies regarding the dignity of every person and the care of resources with which we have been entrusted.

You can make a confidential report using this hotline or, if you wish, you can talk with your pastor, parish life coordinator, principal, or agency director, and the two of you can make a report together. Another option is to contact our Victim Assistance Coordinator directly at 1-800-382-9836, ext. 1548 to report child sexual misconduct or violations of our Code of Conduct regarding the safety of minors. Financial misconduct can also be reported directly to our Chief Financial Officer, Controller, Director of Financial Analysis or Human Resources Director. The contact information for these individuals is at the end of the Whistleblower Policy, which you can access from this site.

If you suspect misconduct, but do not have proof, we would still appreciate any information you can share. If you are unsure of whether a situation is a violation, you can use the reporting system to ask a question confidentially.

The parishes, schools, agencies and other entities of the Archdiocese sincerely appreciate reports that are made and will not retaliate or take action against any person who makes a report. For employees, they will not suffer a loss of employment, a decrease in wages, or other adverse consequences due to making a report.

For the parishes, schools, agencies and other entities of the Archdiocese to safeguard children and demonstrate accountability, every person needs to be willing to report suspicions of wrongdoing. We appeal to you to be vigilant in these areas and to report any information that will help us live up to these standards.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Rev. Charles C. Thompson
Archbishop of Indianapolis
