MAKING A REPORT OF SEXUAL MISCONDUCT: A report of sexual misconduct may be initiated at the Diocese of Kalamazoo’s Sexual Misconduct and Reporting Line: 877-802-0115.  A caller will be requested to provide his or her name and telephone number.  All calls regarding sexual misconduct will be returned usually within one hour.  This toll-free number has been established as a part of the Diocese’s efforts to protect children, young people and other vulnerable people in our schools, parishes and ministries.  This line is for reporting suspected sexual misconduct or child abuse with Diocesan institutions and ministries only.  Other concerns about Diocesan schools, parishes and ministries should be reported to the appropriate Diocesan school or parish.
