SYNOD OF BISHOPS: January 30, 2006

The Synod of Bishops Approves a Sexual Misconduct Policy

The Synod of Bishops adopted a Sexual Misconduct Policy at its regular session in December. This Policy is proposed as a model for adoption by individual dioceses.

His Eminence Metropolitan Laurus, the Ruling Bishop of the Diocese of Eastern America and New York, has already appointed Protopriest Andrei Sommer to head its Office of Clergy Personnel, which is designated to receive initial complaints.

This Policy can be viewed in the Documents section of our website: Sexual Misconduct Policy .
