Reporting Sexual Abuse:  Complaints about sexual abuse by a member of the clergy or by a parish or Catholic school employee or volunteer can be made by calling at (858)490-8353, by emailing misconduct@sdcatholic.com or visiting www.safeinourdiocese.org.

Sexual Abuse Compensation Program| The Independent Victim Compensation Program (ICP), a program sponsored by the Diocese of San Diego to assist victim-survivors who were abused as minors by priests of this diocese, has begun accepting applications.  The ICP is independent and not controlled by the Church.  There is no time limit on when the abuse may have taken place.  The program will consider all claims, regardless of how long ago the abuse occurred.  No attorney is necessary and there are no fees of any kind.  U.S. Residency is also not required.  For more information go to their website  www.CaliforniaDiocesesICP.com.
