The Diocese of Des Moines

Diocesan Policy on Sexual Abuse of a Minor by a member of the Clergy


In December 2002, the diocese implemented an updated policy regarding the sexual abuse of a minor by a Catholic clergy member. Under that policy, it was decided that civil authorities will be notified of any allegations of the sexual abuse of a minor.  Pending an investigation, any cleric guilty of such an act will be permanently removed from ministry.  View the diocesan policy, updated in 2016, here.
