To Report Misconduct by Bishops

To report misconduct by a bishop including both an allegation of sexual abuse and any cover up by way of actions or omissions intended to conceal information or to interfere with investigations, please contact the Catholic Bishop Abuse Reporting Service at or call toll free 1-800-276-1562. You may remain anonymous if you choose in both instances. The Catholic Bishop Abuse Reporting Service will receive and relay those reports to the proper Church authorities for investigation.  Where a report includes a crime, such as the sexual abuse of a minor, it will also be reported to civil authorities.
