Ethics and Integrity in Ministry (EIM) Office
Together we are Fulfilling our Commitment to Heal and Protect.
On January 1, 2002, the Catholic Diocese of Austin instated policies on Ethics and Integrity in Ministry (EIM). EIM compliance is required of all clergy, religious, seminarians, diocesan employees, parish and Catholic school employees, and lay persons who volunteer in ministry with minors or vulnerable adults, or in any ministry, program or organization that serves youth or vulnerable adults in any manner, or functions at a time and place where they are typically present. To be compliant, one submits an EIM Application for Ministry (one time only) and attends an EIM Workshop every three years.

Thank you for your commitment to protecting children and the vulnerable from preventable harm.
