Office of Human Resources

The Human Resources Office serves and supports all levels of ministry within the Diocese of San Bernardino by developing processes and procedures that balance employer requirements and human needs with Gospel values, diocesan policy and employment law in a proactive manner. This is demonstrated by proper administration of all benefits, relevant and fair recruiting practices, promulgation of safe environment policies, integrative management development processes, preventive employment practices and timely response to workplace justice issues. Effective support and guidance to all ministry areas contributes to an environment in which each person in ministry can follow their calling in service to the Church.
