The Code of Pastoral Conduct for Protecting God's Children in the Diocese of Greensburg
On September 30, 2012, Bishop Lawrence E. Brandt promulgated the “Code of Pastoral Conduct” for the Diocese of Greensburg. This code is designed to be a companion to the guidelines of the National Charter and to replace both the “Minor Protection Policy” and the “Policy of the Diocese of Greensburg for Clergy Sexual Misconduct.”
The “Code of Pastoral Conduct” for the Diocese of Greensburg clearly sets forth standards and expectations for all those who act in the name of the diocese. This document applies to all bishops, priests, deacons, religious and lay members of the Christian faithful who assist in providing pastoral care in the diocese.
Although this code cannot cover every aspect of every circumstance that one may encounter in the course of church related work, it should be seen as a concise enumeration of expected public and private behavioral standards for those working or volunteering in the parishes, schools and other entities within the Diocese of Greensburg.
