Reporting Child Sexual Abuse and Sexual Harassment

The Diocese of Richmond encourages individuals to report abuse directly to law enforcement authorities by calling the Attorney General’s Clergy Abuse Hotline at (833) 454-9064. In addition, we place no deadlines or time limits on those who contact the diocese to report the sexual abuse of minors by priests, deacons, and or other personnel.

After first contacting the civil authorities, in a commitment to support and facilitate healing, individuals who have been sexually abused by a cleric, religious, employee, or volunteer of the Diocese of Richmond are then encouraged to contact the confidential Victim’s Assistance Reporting 24 Hour Number 1-877-887-9603 or Director of Safe Environment 804-622-5203 or by email at [email protected].
