Report Misconduct (Title IV Intake)

If you have knowledge of what you believe to be misconduct by a member of the clergy (bishops, priests and deacons,) The Episcopal Church has a detailed and transparent process to act on your complaint. The process is defined in church canons (church law) under Title IV of the Canons of The Episcopal Church. You may start your complaint by contacting the intake officer listed below. You may also have another person contact the intake officer on your behalf. Clerics must also contact an intake officer if they witness or receive information about what is believed to be clergy misconduct.

A detailed website explaining the complaint process and what constitutes an offense is found at www.titleiv.org. Additionally, it also explains various assistance and or pastoral response one may receive during the process. Additionally, the website also features a step-by-step analysis of the process.
