Ethics & Intergrity in Ministry (EIM)
We are all Called to Protect.
On Jan. 1, 2002, the Catholic Diocese of Austin instated policies on Ethics and Integrity in Ministry (EIM) for all employees and volunteers who minister to youth or vulnerable adults in the diocese. These policies were revised in August 2008. All clergy and paid staff, and all volunteers working with youth and vulnerable adults, at any parish or diocesan location, are required to complete an Application for Ministry AND are required to attend an EIM workshop every three years.
If you are a volunteer or employee at any diocesan parish, school or organization, you must be certified in the Ethics & Integrity in Ministry Program. To become certified, you need to attend a "Basic EIM Workshop". You will then attend a "Refresher EIM Workshop" every three years after that to maintain your certification.
For access to all EIM information, please visit the Diocese of Austin website, www.austindiocese.org. Go to the "Offices and Ministries" page, click on "Ethics & Integrity in Ministry Offices" and follow all of the instructions as necessary for your circumstances.
If you have any trouble, please contact the Holy Trinity parish office.
Are you aware of sexual or physical abuse
or neglect of a child or vulnerable adult?
How to report abuse:
The Diocese of Austin is committed to preventing harm from happening to any of our children or vulnerable adults. If you are aware of sexual or physical abuse and /or neglect of a child or vulnerable adult, state law requires you to report that information to local law enforcement or the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services at (800)252-5400 or www.dfps.state.tx.us.
Additionally, if the suspected abuse is by clergy or an employee or volunteer of any diocesan parish, school or agency, a Confidential Notice of Concern should be submitted to the diocesan Ethics and Integrity in Ministry Office at (512) 949-2400. The Confidential Notice of Concern can be found at www.austindiocese.org (click on the link HOW TO REPORT ABUSE). Reports may be made anonymously.
