MAKING A REPORT OF SEXUAL ABUSE
To inform the Eparchy of St. Thomas The Apostle Chaldean Diocese regarding the sexual abuse of minors by priests, church personnel, or volunteers please contact the Victim Assistance Advocate Janan Senawi at the Special Reporting Hotline at (248) 354-3066, or you may contact the ordinary of the diocese Bishop Francis Kalabat at (248) 351-0440. A caller will be requested to provide his or her name and telephone number. All calls regarding complaints of sexual abuse will be returned in timely manner. This telephone number has been established as part of an effort by the Eparchy of St.Thomas Chaldean Diocese to protect children, young people, and other venerable people in our parishes and ministries. This line is for reporting suspected sexual misconduct or child abuse within our diocesan institutions and ministries only. Persons with complains not involving clergy or church personnel should refer the matter to the civil authorities.
