Occasionally a school, parish or the pastoral centre will receive anonymous or more vague complaints of physical or sexual abuse by an employee, volunteer, or member of the clergy. Such complaints are impossible to investigate effectively. All allegations are taken seriously and, if action is to be taken, it is necessary to be provided with a way to verify facts and conduct a thorough investigation. If you have a complaint and/or are in possesion of details regarding an allegation, please contact 604-683-0281 Ext 50555.
