Report Abuse

To report sexual abuse involving diocesan personnel — priests, deacons, teachers, employees or volunteers at schools or parishes — call the Diocese of Brooklyn’s toll-free, confidential sexual-abuse reporting line at:


The Catholic Bishop Abuse Reporting Service has been established to receive reports of sexual abuse and related misconduct by bishops and to relay those reports to proper Church authorities for investigation. Where a report includes a crime, such as the sexual abuse of a minor, it will also be reported to civil authorities. Otherwise, reports will be kept confidential.

If you suspect someone is in immediate danger, call 911.
