Risk Management

Our Mission
The Office of Risk Management is charged with the development, implementation and administration of loss control and risk management programs, as well as procuring insurance, in accordance with the requirements set forth in Canon Law 1284. In part that provision requires that every effort is made to (1) "exercise vigilance so that the goods entrusted to their care are in no way lost or damaged, taking out insurance policies for this purpose insofar as necessary; (2) take care that the ownership of ecclesiastical goods is protected by civilly valid methods; and (3) observe the prescripts of both canon and civil law or those imposed by a founder, a donor, or legitimate authority, and especially be on guard so that no damage comes to the Church from the non-observance of civil laws."

Our Goal
The goal of the Office of Risk Management is ensure the strong stewardship of assets acquired through the generosity of many by reducing hazards, minimizing risk and keeping Archdiocesan property and casualty costs to a minimum.
