A message from Archbishop Paul Etienne

BishopThe Archdiocese of Seattle is dedicated to managing the resources of the Church as faithful stewards. To fulfill the mission of the Church, we must work together in an ethical and accountable manner. Therefore, we set high standards for ourselves and expect everyone to work within established Archdiocesan policies and procedures and the guidelines set forth in Many Gifts, One Spirit, our Pastoral and Sacramental Policies.

There are many procedures already in place within the Archdiocese of Seattle to help ensure accountability and transparency. For example, every parish is required to have a Parish Finance Council to provide an annual financial report to parishioners and the chancery. The Archdiocese has its own Archdiocesan Finance Council that provides oversight and publishes annual reports found on the Archdiocesan website. The central ministries of the Archdiocese and our benefit plans are audited by independent auditors annually. Furthermore, parishes are subject to periodic finance and human resources reviews by Parish Financial Services.

These oversight practices ensure we can be good stewards of the Church. But this work isn’t just the responsibility of an oversight board or an auditor. We want anyone to be able to confidentially report concerns about conduct related to church activities.

We selected EthicsPoint, an independent third-party company, to provide an ethics hotline so employees, volunteers, parishioners, vendors and others can report concerns about suspected financial or human resources misconduct. This provides us with an additional measure that supports compliance with the extensive policies and procedures of the Archdiocese. Reports can be filed confidentially by choosing the "Make a Report" link on the right side of this web page, or via one of EthicsPoint's trained specialists at 1-844-815-8236.

Thank you for your time and support. Let us continue to work together to become better stewards of the Lord’s countless gifts!
