When a criminal charge involving a minor is filed or a credible accusation against a member of the Church concerning a minor is established, the Diocese of Phoenix immediately alerts the public through a Community Notification Statement on its website.

The Diocese of Phoenix was officially established on December 2, 1969 – prior to that establishment the parishes, schools and other institutions were part of either the Diocese of Tucson or the Diocese of Gallup. Any credible allegation of abuse that occurred prior to the December 2, 1969 date is coordinated by the Diocese in which the abuse occurred. Please see the links below for credible allegations in the Diocese of Gallup and the Diocese of Tucson:
