This Manual has been prepared to provide each Pastor, Parish Business Manager, Principal, Office Staff, Volunteer and Administrator of Diocesan Agencies within the Catholic Diocese of Charlotte a guideline to risk management procedures, and the insurance coverage that protects the properties within the Diocese. The following manual is presented as a reference source and tool to address loss prevention, insurance coverage and claim reporting. The guidelines contained herein apply to all entities, ordained clergy, employees and volunteers of the Diocese of Charlotte.
Catholic Mutual Group or members of the Diocesan Properties & Risk Management Department may be contacted to review specific coverage questions, review leases, certificates of insurance, the cost of insurance, and to report property or bodily injury claims. Business administrators and senior personnel of each organization participating in the Diocesan insurance program need to be familiar with the nature and extent of the insurance provided by the program. Periodic changes and adjustments in insurance coverage are promulgated to participating parishes and organizations through supplements and revised pages in the Risk Management and Insurance Manual and are designated with an edit mark in the left margin.
