ASSURING NEUTRALITY

ASSURING NEUTRALITY IN CHURCH-RELATED DISPUTES

In order to promote objectivity and impartiality in resolving disputes, the process of conciliation and arbitration operates without influence or interference from the ordinary administrative channels of the Archdiocese. This is to insure a fair outcome of independent judgment, neither favoring the Archdiocese of Chicago nor the parties in dispute.

HOW DOES A PERSON REQUEST THE SERVICES OF THE OFFICE OF CONCILIATION IN DISPUTE MATTERS?

To initiate the process of conciliation, a person [Petitioner] contacts the Office by phone, email or letter, and describes the nature of the dispute [Problem] with a member of the Office, who will determine the jurisdiction of the issue, and will either assist in attempting to resolve the issue, or will direct the petitioner to the persons/offices with jurisdiction.
