Reporting Clergy Misconduct

The Title IV Canons of the Episcopal Church require every diocese to provide for and publicize methods of reporting instances of possible clergy misconduct. The Diocese of Tennessee has such a procedure in place.

Anyone desiring to report possible clergy misconduct should contact the Intake Officer of the Diocese of Tennessee, The Reverend Kristine Blaess.

The Title IV Canon 6 outlines the procedure to be followed once a report of possible clergy misconduct has been received.
