The Office of Conciliation is charged by the Archbishop, in the name of the Church of Chicago, and in service to the gospel to assist believers in settling their conflicts and thus to repair and restore table harmony. The Office of Conciliation provides dispute intervention, consultation, and assistance to parishes, agencies, and individuals desiring to restore and improve relationships.

The Office of Conciliation provides its services without cost, funded by the generosity of the many parishes in their support of the Archdiocese.

The process of conciliation is available to assist in the resolution of disputes between:

  • Individual members of the Church and its parishes or groups within the Archdiocese when a dispute concerns a church-related matter.
  • A person and an administrator or administrative agency of the Archdiocese when it is contended that Church law, Archdiocesan policy and procedures or natural equity may have been violated.
