My Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
I am pleased to present to you the
policies which the Evangelical Catholic Church has taken to
implement regard sexual abuse and sexual misconduct. These
policies reflect our heartfelt desire to seek and serve Christ in
all persons and to love our neighbors as ourselves. We commit
ourselves to protecting the safety of each and every person who
comes and celebrates the sacraments with us.
Our policies requires each of us who
exercise ministries within this Church body to remain mindful of our
commitment for the protection of all.
As I present these policies to you, I
do so with the belief that every person is equally committed to the
safety and protection of each of us within God's family.
We look forward to sharing this
obligation with you.
Respectfully Yours in Christ,
James Alan Wilkowski
Presiding Bishop for the Evangelical Catholic Church
