FACEBOOK PAGE

Greetings Everyone, 

Currently we have been using a Facebook Group called "Cluster Parishes of Portsmouth and Chesapeake Official Group".  We will be moving over to using a Facebook page (Cluster Parishes of Portsmouth and Chesapeake).  This allows us to be more transparent.  You don't have to join, you just have to like and follow the group to get updates.  Otherwise you can just go look at the page without any other action.  We will be live streaming masses from the Page.  I will update on the group where to go but for anyone, you can go to the page and see what is going on.   I hope this helps.  Just trying to survive the IT learning curve.  Theresa

Ethics Abuse Hotline Established by Diocese


Bishop Knestout announces the implementation of a hotline to report suspected financial, administrative or human resource misconduct within the Diocese of Richmond.


The hotline is handled through EthicsPoint, an independent, third-party reporting system, to ensure accountability and transparency. This helps to safeguard the resources entrusted to us by the people of our diocese. Reports can be made online or by phone. Employees, volunteers, clergy, parishioners and any other individual wishing to make a report can do so anonymously.


The toll-free number is 844-739-3210 and is offered in multiple languages. To submit a report online, visit the diocesan website, www.richmonddiocese.org, and select “EthicsPoint.”


The hotline number is not a 911 or emergency service number. Individuals should not use this number to report information that is of an immediate threat to life or property.


Additionally, EthicsPoint is NOT intended to receive information about sexual abuse allegations. Abuse allegations should be reported immediately to local law enforcement and the Attorney General’s Clergy Abuse Hotline at 1-833-454-9064.


Additional information including a video message and letter from Bishop Knestout, a list of frequently asked questions and other resources regarding EthicsPoint can be found by visiting the diocesan website.
