Diocesan Coordinator of Pastoral Care

We are all Called to Protect.


The Diocese of Austin is committed to providing confidential and compassionate care to victims of sexual abuse, particularly if the abuse was committed by clergy or a church representative. If you have experienced abuse by someone representing the Catholic Church, please contact the diocesan Coordinator of Pastoral Care at (512) 949-2400.


                     If you are a victim of sexual abuse and have concerns regarding your attendance at an EIM Basic or Refresher workshop,

                                   please contact Emily Hurlimann at (512) 949-2447 to discuss an alternative workshop arrangement.





It is the responsibility of the Catholic Church to respond with compassion to the needs of those who have been abused.

Bishop Joe S. Vásquez
