Human Resources

The Diocese of Santa Rosa serves 41 Parishes, 22 Missions, and 9 schools, sprawling over 6 counties, 53 cities, and 11,711 square miles.  We serve a diverse range of churches and schools, from the Bay Area to the California/Oregon state line. Our goal is to bring effective management, communication, and processes to our expansive Diocese in order to achieve consistent outcomes where parishes and schools thrive.

Our office strives to ensure personnel policies and programs throughout the diocese are consistent, understood and enforced uniformly; to address the human resources challenges that our local church faces, and to comply with federal, state and local laws.

Our office also supports a holistic Human Resources best practice framework in order to increase employee engagement in areas such as Labor Codes & Compliance, Performance Management, People Management, Sexual Harassment Prevention, and Wellness Programming.

Our office dedicates itself to serving all employees of the diocese and all others with whom we associate in a professional, respectful and courteous manner.
