Though we are a community of faith trying to live up to the examples set forth in the Gospels, we are also human and disputes will arise from time to time. It is important to resolve these disputes in a manner consistent with our faith. Scripture urges us to settle our disagreements within the Church community, taking care that our efforts are imbued with a spirit of love and forgiveness (Luke 6, 27).
The due process procedures of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee are based on the presumption that parties in a dispute desire a settlement in an equitable fashion and are willing to work toward an amicable settlement. The process attempts to protect the interests of all parties involved, aiming at the resolution of the grievance.
